thank you, i cant wait for the 1940 census. does anyone know if there was legal adoptions done in the 30,s how to find if one was ever done with my mom.? i'd be curious to see if i am legally a Davis ? my mom has always gone by the last name Davis .calling Jenny Davis her mom that raised her, but Florence Thompson/Flora was her bio mom.some one named Frank Thompson was her bio dad. he was killed in Ionia Mi in late 1930/31 from what my mom was told in a bad car accident.my mom was born Jan 1931.
