Re: Parent adoption

Hi Colin,

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

https://fhug.org.uk/kb/kb-article/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
