I Am an Adult Adoptee, How Can I Get Non-Identifying Background Information About My Adoption and About My Birth Parents?

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) or the licensed California public or private adoption agency that handled the adoption can provide non-identifying background information about the birth parents to the adoptee. The information released includes general facts about the birth parents and their medical history. This service is available only for adoptions that were finalized in California. Some licensed private adoption agencies may charge a fee for this service.

You may request this information by writing directly to the licensed California adoption agency, if known, or to the CDSS. http://adoptionsearcher.com/faq/

My #California birth index is key to cross referencing a birth name and birth parent's names with the adoptee's name. If you gave birth to a child who was adopted and you don't know the amended name the adoptive parent's gave her, the index is a means to identifying her full name. The birth mother (and sometimes father) can also be researched in the index, but the name provided is just the last name of the mother and sometimes the father's initials. If she was married and the spouse was not the father, then his last name may have been recorded, as well. From there, I piece together the family story from multiple sources -- who are these family members and what kind of life have they lead? Have they had a good life? Birth to adulthood is a long separation. There's much to discover.

"Mr O'Brien had some tips for LinkedIn users worried that they might have befriended a hacker.

"You can do a reverse image search by dragging and dropping the profile picture into Google Images and see what it brings up.
"Copying and pasting the job information in Google can also reveal whether it has been taken from somewhere else."

"Instead of the unfathomable "Unknown" and vague "Other", LinkedIn should provide us with a search/source chain like this:

[Name/Anonymous] found you by [this activity] or [keyword] on [this date] and visited your Profile on [this date] via [LinkedIn] [LinkedIn search] [Group] [Pulse] [Update] etc."
