Obtaining Identifying Information:
Identifying information is provided through an Adoption Registry.

Using the Adoption Registry:
The State Department of Human Services maintains an adoption registry for DHS placements. Licensed voluntary agencies also may establish and maintain registries. The DHS registry is a mutual consent registry in which both parties must be registered before identifying information can be released. Adopted adults age 21 or older, birth parents, and individuals related within the second degree may register. Before release of information, parties requesting information are required to have 1 hour of counseling.

I am a genealogist and I am working with the son of an adopted individual. The adopted individual has passed away some 20 years ago. Can you put something on your website that shows what he can do to get information for family research? #1
