I am adopted. My father used a private lawyer to complete the adoption. My father and mother are deceased. My birth certificate lists Columbia County as the place of birth. The State suggested I contact Philadelphia County to get information on the adoption from it’s Hall of Records. I also wanted to try to go back through my county of birth Columbia to see if I could get information regarding my origins. I was born according to all information December 21st 1955. Any information would be appreciated.
