Re: Parent adoption

Mike Tate

Hi Colin,

See FHUG Knowledge Base ‘Recording Children with Foster/Adoptive Parents’:


Nigel (and Barry) can be added to the 2nd partnership.

Then the Child – Father relationship for Nigel can be set to Adopted.

There is a standard Adoption Event that can be added to Nigel.

The Alternate Name for Nigel can be set to Nigel Kenneth Smith.


Regards, Mike Tate
