It would all depend on how long ago the adoption took place. My husband, at
the age of 55, found out he was adopted and although somewhat difficult (and
time consuming) to have any documents released, we were able to find out his
birth name (he was adopted in 1945)
Records before 1975 were/are sealed but recent legislation has made it
somewhat easier to have information release. However, we are talking about
a third party here (as opposed to my husband searching for his own records)
so it might be more difficult unless you have a death certificate for the
person and proof you are their relative

Can SKS give me a few pointers in helping someone I know find her
grandmothers real surname. She has recently discovered about the adoption
and can't track back any further now!
