Hi,

How do I add a foster family / adoption family to a person in my tree. I know the biological parents and they are registered in the tree and the person in question is registered as their daughter which she is. But this daughter is later adopted by another family.
I need to know how to establish the adoption family and connect the adopted person to them.

Hope someone can help me out with this ☺

Regards Peter

You have a family containing the child and birth parents.
You want to add adoptive/foster/etc. parents.

Do you already have the adoptive/foster/etc. parents in your tree?
If not, you need to create them first.

In the child's page, on the family tab, there is an option "Link this individual to an existing family as a child"
Here you can select the adoptive/foster/etc. parents.

Thanks ☺

Yes - but how do I create the foster family. I know I have done it before, but it has totally slipped my mind how to do it ☺

You can add an unrelated person with the Control Panel. I forgot what menu it is in.

Often I just add a child (or parent) in any random family and then unlink that individual.
To do that, go to the page of the Family and use menu Edit - Change Family Members.
There you can remove the person from that family.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.13
