Sign Up For Registries

To help in your genealogy research, be sure to register in any and all applicable State and/or National Reunion Registries. These are sometimes called 'Mutual Consent Registries.'

Registries work in this way: Each member of what is called the 'adoption triad' (child, birth parent, adoptive parent) can sign up with the registry. The registry tries to match each individual with someone else who may be searching for them.
