    Trying to determine grandmother from St. Elizabeth Hospital patient records

    Rebecca Ferm Newbie

      My mother was born at St Elizabeth's Hospital, in Washington DC in the 1950s. I am searching records to find her birth mother, who was a patient at the hospital at the time. My mother was adopted shortly after birth, and we have no identifying information about her birth mother other than the day she gave birth. The National Archives Catalog indicates there are case files of female patients, (90.4.35) but I am unsure how to begin looking without anything but a date of birth for my mother. Is this information going to be sufficient to find any identifying information to help find records of her biological mother as a patient at the hospital? Any help and assistance would be greatly appreciated!
