Adoption Records for my Father

Posted: 1241425241000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Grandchamp, Pilz, O'Hara, Deaett, Wylie
I'm hitting a wall when it comes to finding the records of my father's adoption, in abt. 1950 in Providence, RI. I know these are sealed, but since they're 60 yrs old and all parties, my father, grandmother, bio grandfather, adopted grandfather, are deceased, I am hoping to get my hands on them. Also, I've found a direct link with my father's bio dad and Roger Williams, and need these document to prove parentage, as my dad's birth certificate was changed. His info is as follows:

b- 9 Jan 1943- Old Lyings Hospital, Providence, Providence, RI
d- 26 Oct 2005- At Home, Simi Valley, Ventura, CA
Father- ELTON HAROLD DEAETT (1918-1993)
Mother- HAZEL AGNES WYLIE (1923-2000)
m- Oct 1939 First Esicipol Church, Providence, Main Street
div- abt 1946

HAZEL married 3 additional times:
2. REX O'HARA m- 1946 div- 1949
3. ERNEST A. "ERNIE" PILZ (1918-2007) m- abt 1950 div- abt 1959
ERNIE adopted my father in abt 1950 changing his name and birth certificate to BRUCE WILLIAM PILZ
4. CONRAD KENNETH "KEN" GRANDCHAMP (1922-1975)m. 1960 widowed- 1975
As BRUCE was an adult when his mother married KEN, he remained a PILZ, until he legally changed his surname to GRANDCHAMP in 1973/74 through the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County, Van Nuys Division.

I need to get these records...Anyone know who I can call within the state agency to retrieve proof of parentage by his biological father, ELTON HAROLD DEAETT.

Jenny Rose Grandchamp.
