    Seeking birth parents of William E Kreps

    Karen DelGrosso Newbie

      My Grandfather, William E Kreps, is shown on numerous census records being born on 13 Jan 1882. Family records and census records indicate that his parents were Samuel Addison Kreps and Emma Brose. William's SS application show his parents to be Edward Kreps and Emma Brose. He lived most of his life in Pittsburgh, PA, however there were possibly family members in OH. I've completely hit a brick wall. Were births recorded in 1882? Could he have been adopted or given to another family member after birth? Where can I go for adoption records? Thank you for any coaching you might offer.
