1923 Feb 23. Rootschat "I am totally confused regarding a birth certificate that I have received.  It is for the birth of Alexander Herbert Lamberton on 23rd February 1923 at 277 Cricklewood Lane, Childs Hill, London NW2.  His parents are named as Herbert Frank Lamberton and Ella Mary Lamberton, formally Turpie.  On the side of the certificate the word 'Adopted' is written. My problem is that living relatives remember Alexander living at that address until he was about 10, therefore why would the word adopted be written on the certificate?"
