At OnGenealogy we share online adoption records from websites and archives.


Records included in the Adoption category at OnGenealogy will be any record that implies a child may have been adopted or was raised by someone other than the birth parent. This includes:

  • court and legal records including guardianship records

  • orphanage records of adoption

  • some bastardy bonds requiring financial obligation from a birth parent

  • amended birth certificates

  • adoption registers

  • reunion registers

  • adoption sites
