My father was abandoned at the Yokohama train station in (we think), 1948. Papers say he was born in 1948, however I understand this may actually be conception year based on Japanese record keeping. We have always assumed that his father was American GI, yet the Japanese will not help us. He was in the Lady of Lourdes orphanage until he was adopted and came to the US when he was six years old.
Has anyone had any luck with Japanese records?
