Can I ask how others record an adopted son.
I have one with a family on the 1901 census where he is recorded with a different
surname. Initially, I linked him to the man by creating another un-named spouse and the
child is a descendant of that 2nd "relationship".
However, it looks odd on a descendants chart but then it could easily be misleading if I
include him as a direct member of the main family group.
I suppose I could create an "Adopted" flag and then use that to modify any
diagrams (either with an Icon or text line).
Anyway, I'd appreciate any thoughts.
