Does Genes Reunited cover adoption records if the adopters have passed away as well as the birth parent and where would I look for the information?

Thank you

Adoption records are never made public.

Anyone who has been formally adopted can apply for their records. Look at the website.

ONLY the adoptee can access his or her records
