      Wendy,

      I don’t think there’s much you can do. If you think the adoption was through a religious institution (and you know which one) you could ask them if they have any records. But I wouldn’t be optimistic.

      Thank you Elwyn. So that's that then, nothing I can do.

      Wendy,

      Adoption law was only introduced in Ireland in 1927. Prior to that it was all done on an informal basis ie by just handing the child over to a relative, or the church etc. There was rarely, if ever, any paperwork and certainly no formal adoption files or statutory legal records etc.

      Does anyone know how easy it is to find adoption records for the period 1907 - 1915 for Belfast. I am particularly interested in finding a relation of mine who may have been adopted at that time. Any information would be helpful. 

      Thank you

      Wendy
