14th Annual "RegDay"
Separated by adoption? Looking for a relative? Could a family member
be looking for YOU? Register for FREE to be found!
RegDay is an annual event to increase public awareness of the
International Soundex Reunion Registry; a free humanitarian service
better known as ISRR. ISRR is a non-profit mutual consent registry
dedicated to reuniting adult family members separated by adoption,
divorce, or other dislocation.
For families separated by adoption who wish to search for lost kin,
state laws permanently sealing adoption records can make it that much
more difficult. Original birth certificates are even sealed in cases
of step-parent adoption.
RegDay can be a source for information on a variety of records-access
reform issues of interest to both the adoption and genealogy
communities. Recent open records victories in Maine, New Hampshire,
Alabama, and Oregon have helped to raise awareness of the need to
make these personal government-held records available to those to
whom they most intimately pertain.
With over 6 million adoptees in the U.S and countless other siblings,
relatives, spouses, and friends affected, this topic is not only
timely, but it is also universal.
