In Reply to: Adoption Agencies in Atumwa, Johnson Co. by Michelle Reed of 322

Dear Michelle,
I am kind of doing the same thing , I am attempting to open my grandmas adoption records , she lived in Iowa City and was born there . I live in Iowa and I talked to Ruth Bartels in Des Moines and she said if the person is still alive they need the application. Other wise you have to cotact the County Courthouse. I contacted a Kathy at Johnson Co. courthouse and she said they just need all the info in writing I know a little about it. What County are you looking for. Is Ottumwa your town? I hope I have helped there are also a couple of Co. courthouses listed in my phonebook. Let me know if I can help. I have no idea what a closed adoption is but it may not be relevant if the person adopted is deceased.
Take Care and good luck,
