Locating Adoption Records Database now Accessible to All - 17/1/22
CoramBAAF is pleased to announce that ourĀ Locating Adoption Records database is again fully accessible to adoption agencies, members of the public and researchers.

Over a number of years BAAF, and subsequently CoramBAAF, has developed and maintained this unique database that can be used to find out where adoption records might be held. The database can be searched using historic information about a home (maternity, mother & baby, shelter etc.), organisation or local authority involved in the birth or adoption, or even a staff member who worked in one of these homes or organisations. The results show the most likely current holder of any surviving adoption records, and include contact details so that further enquiries can be made.

For several years, the database has been accessible to adoption agencies that are members of CoramBAAF, while other visitors to the website were required to make a request through the website for a free of charge facilitated search. But now anyone visiting the Adoption Search Reunion website can access theĀ Locating Adoption Records database and search for the current holder of records using whatever information they have in their possession.

During the coming year we will also be working to update the information held within the database and to include details of those RAAs that also hold adoption records. We invite adoption agencies to check their own record in the database and to inform us of any changes to the information held by emailing us at with any updates.
