A very close friend recently lost her dad. She was talking to me that she really wishes she had learned more about her dad's past.
I have hit a wall and can not find her dad's birth certificate or adoption papers.
She provided me with the following information:
"My father: Donald Elmer McGar born 7-25-1933, born in Liberty, NY. My mom’s dad, Lee Ross Tompkins delivered my father.
His father was Elmer McGar
His mother Irene Moutoux
My father was adopted when he was 12+ by Joseph C. Benza and his name was changed to Donald Joseph Benza.
Would anyone have the time to check if there is a birth certificate or adoption papers on file.
Thank you for any help
