My name is Christen Giles, my birth name was Wendy, nice to meet you.
I do not know who my biological mother is. The only information my adoptive mother gave me is that my father was a Swedish exchange student from Sweden in '82-83 as a senior in High School in Jamestown Public High School, Jamestown, N.Y.. He left to go back to sweden before my biological mother knew she was pregnant. So i went to jamestown High School in N.Y. and looked in the yearbook. There were only 2 exchange students listed. Peter Lindgren and some one else. But the picture of Peter Lindgren is the spitting image of my son and I. The high School wouldnt give me any Information other than he was born in Stockholm around 1965. That's basically All i have, other than 2 pictures. my adoptive mother changed my birth name to Christen. I have a copy somewhere of the name of the adoption agency. It was Chataqua county. I called Jamestown Hospital and they told me the only Birth Certificate I have is my adopted Name, and my Birth name is in a closed and sealed adoption case. I can only get my adoption case open with a court order and even if they opened it, it would only contain non- identifying information of my birth parents. No, I was born in 1984 in Jamestown, N.Y. at the women's and Children Hospital. I Have the same swedish phonebook, I've called all the peter Lindgrens in Stockholm, where he was born, but I cannot speak swedish, so no one has been able to communicate with me. My last hope was from a man who linked me to a site. Peter Lindgren, married to Ulrika Kollberg, daughter of Lennart Kollberg, and Kerstin Johansson. Lennart Kollberg is the son of Birger Kollberg and Sally Andersson... Please help me find my family
