Douglas Renfrew Hillman Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada Oct 03, 2000
WAS ADOPTED AT BIRTH. I UNDERSTAND THAT IT WAS A PRIVATE ADOPTION. MY BIRTHDATE IS MAY 24, 1951. I WAS ADOPTED BY BETTY MAY (NEE LOWTHIAN) HILLMAN, HER DATE OF BIRTH IS MAY 04, 1927, BORN IN NEWPORT, ISLE OF WIGHT WHO MARRIED WALTER DOUGLAS HILLMAN, HIS DATE OF BIRTH IS FEBRUARY 23, 1922, WHO WHO WAS A CANADIAN SOLDIER DURING WORLD WAR II AND STATIONED IN ENGLAND. I WAS TOLD THAT MY MOTHER LIVED IN SANDOWN AND HAD TWO OTHER CHILDREN. ON OR ABOUT 1991 I WROTE THE REGISTRY OF BIRTH, NEWPORT, ISLE OF WIGHT REGARDING MY ADOPTION AND SOON FOUND OUT THAT MY MOTHER'S NAME WAS GRACE SULLIVAN AND THAT MY NAME AT BIRTH WAS CHRISTOPHER JOHN SULLIVAN. SHORTLY AFTER HAVING THAT INFORMATION I TRIED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS TO MAKE CONTACT WITH ANYONE BEARING THE NAME OF SULLIVAN, TO NO AVAIL. IT IS NOT MY INTENTION TO CREATE PROBLEMS FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD RESULT IN THEIR LIVES BEING UP-ROOTED. HOWEVER, DUE TO SOME RECENT HEALTH PROBLEMS I FIND MYSELF NEEDING TO LOCATE ANY INFORMATION REGARDING MY BIRTH FAMILY. I WAS NEVER ABLE TO OBTAIN ANY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION FROM MY ADOPTED MOTHER OTHER THAN STATING THAT MY BIRTH MOTHER WAS FROM SANDOWN AND HAD TWO OTHER CHILDREN. AND THAT I WAS BORN AT THE HOSPITAL IN NEWPORT. NUMEROUS YEARS AGO I THOUGHT I CAME CLOSE TO TRACKING MY BIRTH MOTHER/FAMILY. WHEN I CALLED BACK THE NUMBER I HAD USE I RECEIVED A VERY DIFFERENT RECEPTION. BETTY MAY (NEE LOWTHIAN) RETURNED TO THE ISLE OF WIGHT NUMEROUS UPON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS SINCE WE MOVED TO CANADA. WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL INFORMATION ANYONE CAN PROVIDE IN MY SEARCH. BETTY MAY (NEWW LOWTHIAN)HILLMAN HAS NEVER BEEN WILLING TO PROVIDE ME WITH ANY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION THAT WOULD ASSIST ME IN THIS SEARCH. I DO NOT WISH TO UP-ROOT ANYONE'S LIFE HOWEVER, IT'S IMPORTANT FOR ME TO FIND OUT WHERE I COME FROM AND ENABLE MYSELF TO BETTER PREPARE FOR ANY FURTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS. ALL RESPONSES WILL BE ACKNOWLEDGED AND RESPONSED TO. PLEASE SEARCH YOUR HEART AND SOUL AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF MY NEEDING THIS INFORMATION. THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE. DOUGLAS R HILLMAN
