7763RE: [RI_Ancestors] Adoption Question and DNA
- Jul 2 9:29 PM
RI recently opened its adoption records, but unfortunately only the adoptee can request their original birth certificate. I don’t see any provisions
provisions for people who are deceased. The woman from Canada could probably ask the court to unseal the record, but I don’t know
if the attitude about that is generally favorable or not. Maybe she could contact a lawyer to get some advice.
I don’t know how else you could approach this problem unless you have an idea of who her birth parents might have been? Have you
asked any of your older relatives? Mother or aunts? They may know something. With a 99% match to a woman who was born in 1920,
could it be a sister of your great grandmother?
