5520Re: [RI_Ancestors] RI adoption records opened to adoptees 25 & older
- Mar 2, 2012I too agree, my grandmother was adopted in 1926, and died 2008, and even
NOW they are still telling us, they cant open anything until 100 years
after the fact of the adoption, OY! Tho a few years ago, I was sent a
letter saying, "If you can find your grandmothers birth mother and have her
give permission to open the records, we will do so."
I think I see about 5 things wrong with that sentence!
