Hello

Were adoption records kept in the early 1900s for the Belfast area.?

Many thanks

Official adoption (and records) didn't start until later 1920s (can't remember exact date).

GRONI has Adoptions recorded in the Adopted Children Register Northern Ireland from 1 January 1931 (closed records).
