Birth name Deer or Deere 1948 Pittsburgh, PA
Posted by: Dawn Thompson (ID *****9745) Date: May 02, 2009 at 16:37:32

My father was born in Jan. 1948 and adopted in Pittsburgh, PA (CLOSED ADOPTION). His sister (who was adopted too) came accross their adoption papers once and saw that my Dad's birth last name was Deer. Unfortunately she was caught and the papers were immediatley destroyed. His adoptive parents were Mr & Mrs William Rittle and were an older couple so they passed away by the time he was in his twenties. Anyway, my father Pete Rittle died in 1993 and since I've had my own children, one who may possibley have some genetic problems. I am trying to find his birth family so I can find out about their medical background in case I may find some answers. My mother said that he told her that his last name was Deere, so I am now not sure which is the correct one. My Aunt still stands by that it was spelt Deer. I don't know if anyone can help me or point me in the right direction.

Thank you!
