Dear Ms. Hadlock,
Thank you for contacting History Hub!
FamilySearch has a wonderful wiki page about Adoption Research in the U.S. The wiki page includes links on how to access adoption records in each state. FamilySearch also has wiki pages for adoption research in other countries as well.
If you know where the adoption might have taken place, we may be able to provide further assistance and guidance on where to look for information.
Best of luck in your research!
Thank you Amanda, The information is very helpful! I will look into it. I don't know where the adoption was or if she was adopted. I know that they lived in Scott, Davenport, Iowa at one time or other, and Madison, Lake, South Dakota. I can't find a birth record for any of the children, or a death record for John J, Annie Meinert, or baby Annie Helen. Thanks again for you help! Debbie
