I was adopted from one military family to another while both were stationed in Iceland in 1959. I recently petitioned the state dept for a copy of my birth record.They found it but my name on it is still that of my natural parents.How do I get a copy of my adoption papers to show my legal name change so I can I can get the necessary paperwork to show proof of citizenship so I can get a new passport. The state dept won't send me a copy of my record of birth overseas because it isn't in my legal name.Both my natural and adopted parents were American so citizenship is not in question .I just need the paperwork proving it to satisfy the passport people #1
