Lightbulb Minnesota Searching Resources

Welcome to the Search and Reunion Message Board!

Note: The State of Minnesota has a “Confidential Intermediary” search program that will locate and contact birth relatives. See Requesting Identifying Information and Requesting an Original Birth Certificate below:

Requesting Identifying Information: Identifying information is provided on the original birth certificate, which is released according to the provisions below.

Requesting an Original Birth Certificate: An adopted adult can request a copy of the original birth certificate. At this time the Commissioner of Human Services will attempt to locate the birth parents to obtain consent to release the original birth certificate. If each birth parent is located and consents are given, the original birth certificate will be released. If there is no reply or contact with the birth parents, for adopted adults adopted before August 1, 1977, the adopted adult must petition the court for release of the original birth certificate. If the adoption was finalized on or after August 1, 1977, then the original birth certificate will be released to the adopted adult if the birth parents have not filed an access veto.

So,how does someone who was adopted in Oct.1967 get help with the court petition when we do not live in Minnesota and we have no money to be able to do all this with? Do you know of any one who can help any of us with any of this?

Are hospital records available? I know the hospital and date I was born (year was 1969). Just wondering if this is something I could find out myself.

Thanks!

How do I find siblings of the same birth mother, born in Minnesota in the 19040s & 1950s?
