I think there are organizations who help with this kind of search.

Are you searching for your mother's records or do you mean your mom had you and you were the closed adoption?  If you are searching for your own birth records, that is an easier thing than if you are searching for hers.  Here is from Bas tard Nation's website:  "Alabama, Alaska, Oregon, Kansas, New Hampshire Maine and Rhode Island are the only U.S. states where adult adoptees have unrestricted access to their own original birth records."  So if it is that rare when the person looking is the one involved, I would think it would be even harder if you're looking for someone else's records.

At least you know your dad's name, whether he left or not.  Why not try reaching out to his family?

Annie gave you excellent info.  

She asked some good questions, as it's a bit unclear who is the adoptee, and what exactly you're looking for.  Arw you looking to actually FIND people, or just information?

It would be great if you could give us some more info.
