18th April 1962 Wednesday

I was born 18th April, 1962, in Johannesburg, as Ian Colin Fraser from a Maureen Fraser, whose parents apparently arranged everything. Jhb Child Welfare could only tell me she had red hair and fair skin - and she worked 'in an office' and met my father there, and became pregnant. Apparently her parents took over and organized the subsequent adoption - and they may have come in from 'out of town' to do this. Jhb Child Welfare refused to tell me my fathers name, although they have it on file. They also made a point of saying that 'records weren't kept as thoroughly in the early Sixties' - which I doubt.
If any of this information is familiar, or if you perhaps have knowledge that could help me in finding out more about my biological mother, I'd be very grateful.
