I am seeking the mother of a baby girl born 08/25/1971 or August 1971. The delivery doctor was J.L. Smith. Any help appreciated.

I am from the Greenville area and was living there during the time mentioned. There were two brothers who were OB/GYNs, J. M. and J. D. SMITH. They were in practice together. If you would like more info (address/phone), please contact me at DMPringle@sc.rr.com

Could that J. L. possibly be one of the initials above? I don't seem to find or remember a J. L.. Could it be J. D.? That might be a typo that you have???

Hope this is a help.

Hi,
Have you tried contacting the hospital for more information? I'm assuming you are refering to Greenville Memorial Hospital. They should have records, and you might want to try the county courthouse or the state archives. Good luck in your search.

Not sure about SC, but up in NC in the early 70s hospitals were still listing births and hospital discharges in the locals newspapers. If the baby was adopted there is a chance the birth wasn't listed, however, there may have been a notice of Mom's discharge from the hospital. Of course there will probably be more than one for the time frame, and it's a long shot, but can't hurt to try. (HIPAA laws today don't allow these notices.) Also, if there was an adoption, even back in 1971 chances are pretty good that SC, same as NC, won't allow the info to be released by doctors, hospitals or other agencies without jumping thru hoops. Best wishes with your search.
