paternal grandmother is alice josephine koester who was born june 1930 who was a petite woman with long dark hair, dark complexion, an grey eyes who had 2 children a female in 1948 which she gave up for adoption almost immediately, then a male in 1951 (who is my father) which she also gave up immediately for adoption after his birth.

I curently have received the adoption record for my father but it only has very limited information on it.

the paternal grandfather im looking for is conrad jensen from moosejaw saskatchewan an was born in november 1925,he was of slight build, with blond curl hair an both paternal grandparents are of german decent an both are protesent.

conrad was engaged to alice for a duration but wen he found out bout the pregnacy of my father he skipped town possibly back to moosejaw saskatchewan. he has a younger brother who was working for cp rails as a brakeman in 1951, an a older brother who was a carpenter at the time in 1951.

Hi, You have an amazing amount of information.
Is this from the Adoption Record?

Alice Josephine KOESTER has probably married.
It is possible that if so, her husband and any children are unaware of the births.

She was just 18 & 21 when she gave birth to the children.
In those days - many girls gave up their babies -the babies fathers may not have been willing to raise the children. or there may have been other circumstances.
Unmarried -Pregnancy /birth was at most times secret. sometimes - even family members not being aware of same.
Womens situations were much different - than today. Things started to change in the late 1960's -
