Were you born in Indiana? Or are you searching for someone born in Indiana? is proud to offer an Indiana state adoption reunion registry where you can meet by mutual consent without having to open records. We have provided a form on this page for you to check your matches. From Evansville to South Bend and everywhere in between, if both parties want to meet then you can find each other on! For adoptions finalized prior to January 1, 1994 law requires that the Indiana State Registrar, the Family Social Services Administration (FSSA), county divisions of family and children, child placement agencies, health care providers, and courts release identifying information if both the adult adoptee (age 21 and over) and a birth parent (if named on the original birth record) file a written consent form with the office of the State Registrar. For adoptions finalized after December 31, 1993, an adult adoptee (age 21 or over) or the adoptive parents of an adoptee who is under age 21 may request information concerning the identity and location of any pre-adoptive siblings of adoptee, may receive identifying information by sending written request, along with signature identification, to the Indiana State Registrar at the Indiana State Department of Health. Effective July 1, 2018, the new law will equalize access to information for all Indiana adoptees, making Indiana the 14th state to give adult adoptees from the “closed records” period access to their original birth certificate and adoption records.

187. Ocarley : I am looking for my great great grandmothers birth family. Her birth name is Joan Humphrey. And the name of the mother on the notery is Margaret o’Neill. There is no note of a fathers name. She was born in Skidmore, TX how ever the adoption was started in Fountain County Indiana. We are not sure that the adoption was ever finalized. We have been looking for years with no luck. We believe she moved on and didn’t want anyone to know she had a baby before. We would appreciate any help. Please reach out. Olivia Carley.
