Does anyone know how to begin the process of tracking down adoption papers from 1954. Everyone that was envolve is now deceased and I would love to know more about my roots.

your birth record can not be changed of the location where you were born just the names of your adopted folks. if you were adopted in mississippi it might have been threw the miss.childern home in jackson ms which is still there, i know this cause i was adopted from there in 1955.so hope this helps out.

It is my understanding that if you request your information, that in Miss and Tenn, now they can tell you your history. I found my birth mother in Miss after many, many years of searching. I am interested in any info on illegal adoptions in 1954-1955 in Miss. As it turns out, my birth mother did NOT sign me over.

YEP THE LAWS HAVE CHANGED AND ADOPTED CHILD MAY LOOK FOR THERE FOLKS BUT THE FOLKS CANT LOOK FOR THERE CHILDREN, BUT BE CAREFUL FOR WHAT YOU MIGHT FIND, I WAS LUCK. THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD REASON WHY YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN PUT UP. IM GLAD I FOUND MINE. BUT AFTER MY FOLKS PASSED DID I LOOK.

I am looking for a great uncle that would have been adopted in 1953-1955 I am not sure what year exactly I think 1954. My family all want to know. Does anyone have any ideas on how to do it. It would have been at the Corinth hospital in Alcon county.
