I just received letter from the Illinois department of public health informing me that I was born at the Salvation Army Booth Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. This is new info to me because for some reason I always thought I was born at Cook County General. I was born December 28 , 1970. My birth mother was 18 at the time of my birth. I just sent off for my original birth certificate. From what I was told by my adoptive parents, my birth name was LaDawn (not sure of spelling) Harrell. If anyone has any information on what steps I should take next or any other search engines I should use, please , please, please let me know.
Thank you all in advance , and good luck on your searches
