birth family or friend


Looking for birth family, father or friend possibly James Bedford or Robert Case, mother possibly Lillian Ina Miller (but this info given on birth paperwork may be false or slightly inaccurate to keep births secret). Birth mother had at least three children that she gave up for adoption in Calgary, Alberta. Birth mother apparently we are led to believe came from and/or lived in small towns/farms in Saskatchewan (Regina or Moosejaw area?). She may have worked for AGT for a short time in the 1950's. My husband, his birth sister or half sister, and their birth brother or half brother were born in Calgary in the mid 1950's and given up for adoption, have recently located each other and are co-operating on this. My husband was named Gary James Bedford before he was adopted. His birth sister was named Debra Penny, we believe. My husband was born in 1954 in Calgary. Birth mother probably date of birth in the early 1930's. Birth mother may have worked as a fruit picker. Family may have been musical and/or have some musical background.

Proper spelling of Grandfather's name and location of father.


I was named, 'Christopher Brian Jordan' at birth by my parents Brian LeRoy Jordan and Brigitte Sziegaud. My parents divorsed and I was later adopted and renamed as Christopher Brian Hall. Foolishly I changed my name to Christopher Loveall. Upon becoming better aquainted with my father, I learned that he had been adopted while young after the death of his blood father and subsequent remarriage of his Mother to Bruce Jordan of Rimbey. Although respecting my Grandpa Jordan, I wish to be in proper accord with the true blood line. I understand that my father's father had the last name 'Norem' or 'Norheim'. I have been using the last name Norheim officially for quite some time, but I feel a little uneasy... not knowing with certainty as to what is written on my Grandfather's gravemarker.

Looking forward to your reply,
