Where did the adoption take place? In the US, or another country? If in the US, any idea as to which state?

Holly, if your grandmother was born in Illinois - and possibly adopted there - you can try contacting the Illinois Department of Public Health Adoption Registry office to determine what information might be available. See http://www.state.il.us/dcfs/FAQ/faq_aar.shtml

Also, in the record posted by suanj, Claudia Hinson seems to be travelling with a Blanche Vanderboss, aged 38, of San Diego, California. Does this information mean anything to you?
