Hi, I posted a thread in here a couple of months ago, however Iíve received more information since then, so I figured that I should just start a new thread with the information I have now.

Iím searching for my biological Grandmother; my father was adopted at three days old in 1960. He was born January 4th 1960 and adopted on January 7th. (According to my grandmaís records anyway) his birth mothers name was Ilene Hornback she was about 19/20 in 1960 meaning she would have been born in 1940/1941. She lived in Nebraska before she got pregnant and when she was pregnant she moved out to California to have my Dad. I donít think I have any other information but my birth grandpa was in the Air force or the military when my bio grandma got pregnant. I don't know his last name but I seem to remember his first name being David.


I'd like to be in contact with my bio family or at least get the medical records from that side of the family. If anybody can help that would be wonderful.

Under California law, the adoptee can access his records. Read here:

One other thing...

There are 2 listings in the CA Birth Index of males born on 1/4/1960 in Los Angeles County to "mother's maiden name" Hornback. Neither listing has a first name for the child, indicating possible adoption/relinquishment of parental rights. One listing has Hornback for the child's last name, and the other has Shockley. If Shockley is not your father's adopted surname, it may be his bio-father's name. Or it may just be an odd coincidence. But it's not uncommon to find two records on the same person because of new information being found. (and in CA they do press the mother for the father's name)


Again, it might be a coincidence, but in searching the old CA records, there was a David Shockley living on the marine base.

Name: David A Shockley
Address: 99999 Military, Oceanside, CA, 92055 (1986)
[2 Battallion 7th Mari, Oceanside, CA, 92049 (1990)]

Arrrrgh! I just got a good look at the information that my dad has about his adoption, it turns out that Ilene was born in 1939. So while it's great that somebody got the infomation about Ilene Hornback, it's possibly the wrong one.

But how could it be another Ilene? Hornback isn't really a common name. It's possible the courts lied about her age on the paper work to keep reunion from taking place, he was placed in the era of closed adoptions.

Thank you for the information you all gave me though, I know research takes a lot of time.

The courts wouldn't lie about it, but Ilene may have. Sometimes the birth mothers don't tell the truth.

True, I'll write to the Ilene a few posts up, it's possible that's her.

I live in Nebraska and had an elementary teacher named Ilene Hornback. Sounds like the age could be the same.

If born in 1940 - even though indexed as Hornbock - this may be her family
