Adoption Reunion Registries can be a great way to find who you are seeking! Registries put together Adoptees and Birth Parents who submit their adoption information. In order for these to work both the Adoptee and Birth Parent will have had to register at the same place. ISSR (International Soundex Reunion Registry) is the largest Adoption Registry. Be sure to register with them FIRST! Then take a look at some of the other online options. Keep your information updated when registering with any Adoption Registry.
State Registries are listed after the National Registries. All State Registries listed are online or have online information. Most State run Registries are not online at this time. Please Contact the Human Services Dept. in the State of Birth to find out more information on State run Registries. Don't forget ISSR!
