1923 Born in England (lived in Toronto)

1923 Born in England (lived in Toronto)

My mother was born in England in 1923, however, in the Toronto area, more specifically Broadview/Gerrard area in the 50's. If anyone has any information on a family (as I was one of 7 children that I am aware of), please contact me. The only glitch, I do not have a name. I was given up by my mother. My mother would be 90 this year and could very well be deceased.

Her name should be on your birth registration.

Thanks. I am well aware but my mother used the name of the woman that raised me when she went to hospital. That is why I am looking for anyone with information as stated.

Hello Darlyne:

Do you have any other info that might help? Sometimes you have info that you don't even realize that it will help narrow down the search. I know that you said your birth mother used your mothers name in the Hospital but do you recall anyone saying her first name? Do you know which street at Broadview/Gerrard. My family lived in that area during that time and they had several children which was the norm for that area so there are a lot of families that fit. Do you mind providing your birth year/month since there might be a way of looking through voters list or telephone books during that time to narrow it down. Its possible your birth mother lived in the same area as your adoptive mother so if you have a street name for your family that might help.

Its possible one of the other children could be looking for you sometimes people put notices in papers. If you want to message me privately to protect the info I can search the Toronto papers to see if anyone was looking for you. I would need a family name to search and the year you were born so I can have somewhere to start.
