One of my students put her child up for adoption at birth. She still has contact with the adoptive parents. Do I add the adopted child to FamilySearch under the birth parents? Or do I not?
Question: WHY are YOU adding your Student's details into "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch"?
Your Student should be adding their OWN details in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch"; especially, if you are NOT related.
Your Student should have their OWN Account in "FamilySearch"- where you can assist them.
That said ...
In answer to your question(s) ...
'Yes', in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" ALL "Parent-Child" Relationships SHOULD be included for an individual/person.
Those "Parent-Child" Relationships include; but, are NOT limited to:
- Guardianship [ eg. Grandparents ]
An individual/person can CERTAINLY have MORE than one type of "Parent-Child" Relationship.
Of course, the most common and predominant one is "Biological".
But, other "Parent-Child" Relationships certainly occur later.
Here are a couple of "Knowledge Articles" in "FamilySearch":
How do I specify biological, step, adopted, and foster relationships in Family Tree?
The same child shows more than once in a family in Family Tree
Where is states ...
Sometimes you find a family where one or more of the children is listed multiple times. If the child had multiple parents, such a biological and adopted parents, this information may be accurate.
I hope this helps.
I can see why my comment led you to assume that I was entering my students information. However, that is not the case.
I am guiding her and instructing her to do it herself. That being said, in the future, perhaps you shouldn’t rush to such judgement.
I was not rushing to such judgement; as, you have already indicated, your 'Question' leads one to consider/suggest my initial comment in my response to your post.
Aside from that ...
Does the remainder of my response sufficiently answer your question(s)?
