birth registration records & adoption
I am reviewing some Hungarian birth registration records from 1908. They ae very detailed. I have come across one where the following (translated) is written - 'The child was adopted by Pal Strauss '. Only the child'smother was recorded in the 'parents' section. The comment is signed by the registrar and dated 1915. The original indexer has added Pal Strauss as the father but as there is no evidence that he is the natural father should I remove him?
In other records where notes have been added to a christening record where only a mother is mentioned I often see something like 'John Smith acknowledges the child as his own' .
