My Adoption Web Page

This is my page on adoption/adoptees, being myself an adoptee.

I was born in Brisbane in 1961 on the 26th of May. My birth name is Robert Robinson and I am the natural son of Devona Clara Ann Carsley (nee Robinson). I have since had contact with many of my birth relations.

Devona was divorced from her husband at the time of my birth so I am not of the Carsley family. My father's name is Gordon McInnes. It has been confirmed that the Robinsons surname was originally Busing from Rostock, Germany, and changed after one of mother's in the family re-married. Essentially I am a Robinson and McInnes of Anglo-German and Scottish ancestry.

Here are extracted details from my birth certificate and subsequent research confirmed details:
