The ALMA Society, a pioneer organization in fighting for the rights of adoptees everywhere, is the oldest, most comprehensive and successful registry of its kind. We believe the denial of an adult human being’s right to the truth of his origin creates a scar which is embedded in his soul forever. Alma, the Spanish word for “soul”, has a very special meaning to all adoptees, for they have been hurt in the same way.
The ALMA Society is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation funded entirely by tax-deductible registration fees and donations. We were founded in 1971 and have been going strong since then!
What We Do
We are the oldest, most comprehensive and successful registry of its kind. We have been helping our members connect with their birth relatives since 1971.
What We Don’t Do
We do not conduct searches for our members. We will assist with your search through our chapters and search assistants. We do not act as an intermediary in contacting birth relatives.
