LB7J-X2J The person shows his stepfather as a relationship
Samuel's mother, Minerva Flaningam, KD9Z-G5S, had two husbands. He was born to her first husband, Samuel Patrick, MGT4-JM7. When going to his mother's person page he is listed under both husbands. When he is "repeated" under the 2nd father, George Sornberger, KJGK-HJ1 - it has stepfather as his relationship to him. It becomes confusing when going to Samuel Patrick's person page - it shows him with both his father and stepfather. - two fathers - a quick look and the relationship gets overlooked.
It's possible this might be used when records specify that such a relationship exists. Census records are the most common. They are also the ones that have errors showing all persons in their household have the same last name - even when they don't. Or showing incorrect relationships - saying daughter instead of stepdaughter.
So with Samuel, since he's shown directly above already as the son of the 1st husband - Do we need to do that? or is it redundant? I especially need to know as I am a Temple and Family History Consultant and want to make sure what's the correct way.
