Searching for relatives

December 20, 2012

Dear Sir,

My name is Benjamin deGraaf. I was adopted in Bermuda in 1974 and I’m trying to find my birth mother/father, siblings or blood relatives. I was born on May 26, 1973 in Paget, Bermuda. I was officially adopted in 1974 by my foster parents who cared for me from the time of my birth. My adoptive parents were from Canada working and residing in Bermuda. I was adopted by a Caucasian family.

When my adoptive fathers work assignment was up my adoptive parents moved back to Canada where I immigrated with them and have resided ever since. I’m hoping some one might have some information that would lead me to my family. My last name at birth was Trott, upon officially being adopted my name was changed to my adoptive fathers last name deGraaf. If you can help me in my search I and my wife would forever be indebted to your efforts. We can be contacted via e-mail Olivia_barrett1977@yahoo.ca or by calling us at 416-701-9792. Thank you for your time and we hope to hear from someone who can help us in our search. Sincerely,
