Ireland, Ireland : Classification : Adoption Records

Records of UK adoptions are available from the early twentieth century, when legal adoption was introduced. Adoptions prior to this time were done privately however, and records are likely to be hard to find.
Note that only the adoptee can apply for his or her original birth records, so if you're interested in learning about family history, it may not be possible to trace your genetic family line if there has been an adoption.
