Im trying to find old birth announcements from 1978 or birth records. where would i go to find it?? Topic: Newspaper research sources
June 26, 2019 / By Kimbel
Question: i want to find my birth parents and i was trying to look thru old birth announcements but the miami herald only goes back to 1982 and i was born in 1978. i want to search public records but they ask for names and social security numbers and i dont know that information in reguards to my birth parents. how would i go about finding the information i need? i went to several libraries and they happened to be missing the particular film i needed. and no mom was an adult (24) i took the file from my parents without them knowing but it provided little information. mom was 24 from a middle class family was a waitress and grandfather died from emphesyma (not sure if spelled correctly) however i will check out cyndislist. thank you so much for your answers

contrary to your description... birth certificates and/or social security numbers are NOT considered to be a public document. While we realize your intent, the reality is that those records are exactly what id thieves have a field day with. As for announcements.. as Ted mentions, any old newspapers are searchable at a library. Would your birth be there? That is a bit iffy.. if mom was a teenager, and planned on releasing you for adoption. Your best lead is your adoptive parents, if they happen to have details or clues. I have an adopted son, and it was a private adoption.. so I do have the name, and in fact, still have access to bio relatives. My son hasn't chosen to pursue it. IF your parents are willing (some see it as rejection), they may offer the key clue that will lead in the right direction. Another option is www.cyndislist.com which has all kinds of research sources, including a section for adoptees. I believe Texas (for one) has opened an official registry for such issues, where if the child and parents are looking, they can post a message. There are many such registries out there. I wish you much luck. You, by the way, are my 10,000 answer, so maybe that will be an omen for you. I was waiting for a good question to wind up with.

Rory Alexander- Love. It's nice to see someone use Rory for a boy not a girl. Edward Theodore- Another great name. Benjamin Valentine- Not a fan of the name Benjamin but I do like the combo. Jack Paul- I do like the name Jack, however I prefer John with the nickname Jack. Oliver George- Love. Oliver is on the top of my list. Henry Richard- Like Henry not a fan of Richard. Wilfred Cameron Brodie- I'm not sure how I feel about Wilfred but I really don't like Brodie. Margaret Violet- Gorgeous. Elspeth Alice- Like Alice, not sure how I feel about Elspeth. Catherine Alice- My favorite name. Henrietta May- Cute. Hattie about be a cute nickname. Arabella Maria- Nice to see Arabella instead of Isabella. Laila Margaret Laurine- I don't like the double Ls. Celeste Emmeline- Gorgeous.

If you are in (or close to) Miami, you can find whatever newspaper they had then on microfilm in the library.

You can often get what you want from a doctor if a) you've done your research and know you're right and b) you refuse to accept anything less. You have to make it clear what you will and will not do during the prenatal visits, and gauge the doctor's comfort level with that then. It may take some shopping around to find the right one. You have to write out a birth plan well in advance so that the doctors and nurses *know* what you want before you're in labor and compromised. You should also consider a birth center, the kind that have midwives handling the birth. Their main clientele are mothers interested in natural birth, they often also have nice things like pools for waterbirth, which is a nice way to lessen the pain without drugs. What you need to do is shop around early in your pregnancy for medical professionals who will be on your side for the birth. Start planning as soon as you know you're pregnant. Incidentally, I am pregnant and planning to give birth at home, and I'd like you, not to necessarily reconsider your choice of where you want to give birth, but examine your reasons for it. The main determining factor in choosing where to have a normal birth is that you will feel safe and comfortable, so that your mind is not releasing adrenaline, and you can let your body and the oxytocin take over and speed the birth along without unnecessary intervention. For me, that place is my home. You may need the reassurance of having a doctor right nearby. Only you can know that.
