Roberta Bessie and Irene Brandon where given to an orphanage in the very early 1900's. Roberta was later given to Mary Elizabeth Oyer. No formal adoption took place. Is there any way I can possibly track Roberta as an orphan?

You can call oklahoma city adoption dept. and ask what county your relative was adopted in. Then wright a letter to the judge in that county asking him to open up the adoption files on her. That is what I did to find my adoptive relative. If the clerk has time to look for the information, she will. If she is to busy, you may have to go yourself to look for the files.

Thank you for the info. As it turns out this relative was taken from an orphanage without any formality and was never even legally adopted. She was taken to care for a younger child that had been left abandoned on someones doorstep. Hard to believe it isn't it? Then when she had to get a passport the 'mom' had to lie that she was the mother and a birth certificate had to be generated. Didn't even have a real date of birth. It was made up. Very sad.
