Hi, I'm new and unsure of where to look and a bit overwhelmed by all of the discussions out there, but the issue that i am having in my family on more than one instance is in the relationship tab there is no place to show "adoptions"
while it is sort of unusual in our case, a family member was not adopted by her stepfather until she was older, so she has a relationship with both her biological father as well as her adopted father.
Is Geni planning to implement something to show this as it is a legal event and does change birth certificate etc for the minor children.

Hi Kim,

Currently you have two options to show the event:

-- have both fathers attached and leave it as an unresolved conflict (yellow triangle)
-- refer to one father within the "overview" tab of the other

Hope this helps. I believe they will have a more elegant solution in the future but apparently it's a larger development effort than initially hoped.

thanks, i just wondered since there is such a large population of adopted kids out there

Sure, and I'm also sure geni has a better solution in the works as a development effort.

Angus - Thanks for bumping this.

Kim - I'm an adoptive mother, so this issue is important to me, I regularly remind the staff about the need for a solution, too! ;-)
