Bulletin Boards, Message Boards & Guestbooks


    Registry... A person has "registered" with the owner and provided information to help in making a match and a number to call to notify them of a match. The owner will have, in private files, more detailed information.

    NOTE: Some registries are now so automated that any and all information you enter is made public information. Be careful about this.

    With the above exception, it is a good idea to fill out as much as you can in the registration form. Many registries check for matches at the time you register. The more information they have the better job they can do for you.

Guest books, Bulletin Boards, and Message Boards... are very similiar to each other. The difference is just in what is being used by the website owner.
While available to the public at large, these are NOT registries. The e-mail address should be easy to find and one can directly contact the person who posted the message. In most cases, the owner of the guestbook, bulletin board, or message board will not have any additional information regarding the listing.

    Search posts collections Some people 'collect' all search posts they see as they go from one mail list to another. They compile them in such a way that they can find a match if there is one. Some are doing a good service and are to be commended.

    See the end of this page for a list of defunct registries.
