American Adoption Congress
"Although AAC is not a search organization, we support the right of all those whose lives have been impacted by adoption to decide for themselves whether and when to search. We also provide referrals to search and support groups within each state. This section is intended to provide a collection of articles, databases, forums and references, including links to other websites that may be useful to searchers working on their own."
Search by name, location, and telephone number. Includes Reverse Phone Lookup.
International Soundex Reunion Registry
"The International Soundex Reunion Registry is a non-profit, tax exempt, charitable organization founded in 1975 .... ISRR is a mutual consent reunion registry for persons desiring a reunion with next-of-kin. This agency serves the needs of family members who have been separated from each other by adoption, divorce, foster care, institutional care, abandonment, crisis, etc. ISRR is referred to by many groups, internet resources, state departments, courts, government and private agencies - though not directly affiliated with any other registry, organization or website."
