Welcome to Geni's Adoption Portal!

This is the starting place for Geni users interested in exploring adoption within their branches and within the broader World Family Tree. If you are researching your own adoption, the adoption of an ancestor, or where an adoptee in your family may be today, please feel free to use the Discussion area here to collaborate with others.

Adoption-related sub-projects can be found linked to the right. We also have planned projects you can help get started, including:

  • Notable Adoptees
  • Notable Adoptive Parents
  • Intrafamilial Adoption

If you have profiles for adoptees, please feel free to add them to this project for future sorting.


Some broad goals for this portal are to:

  • advocate for sensible adoption integration into Geni
  • develop consensus-based standards for showing adoptions
