Hi Jennie-Thanks so very much for the clarification re. Dan's message.As you could see the dates were not in line with my search.I did not want to seem ungrateful so was not certain how to say thanks but no thanks???As I said I'm new at this.How can I go about getting info from you? I've written to N.J. Human Resources--believe those records should be available to me.I was not put up for adoption, was in permanent foster care, in Jersey City, N.J., think that was in 1939. Don't know where I was from birth in Hackensack in 1936 until 39. Again thank you--you did not say if you are a searcher--if you are good luck to you also.
