Add Foster parents to a child?
Leif Carsten Sommerdal
- Close

I have an individual who has a pair of Natural parents. They die before he turns 9, so his grandparents takes responsibility for him as Foster parents.

I know that I can register the facts in FTB - but I'm working on the online site. Can this fact be added here.

Thanks in advance

I think all you can probably do is add a comment about this. Or a census record or something. One of my great aunts was raised by her uncle, but my tree doesn't show anything different than the normal descent. I just noted the census record to that fact.

In FTB you are able to add an extra pair of parents - so I hoped it was possible to do it in the online version too.

Editing the profile one is able to change the status of the relationship from Natural to Foster.

I can fully understand that it would be a pain to show the relationsship

Hi Leif,

Thanks for writing to us.

The best way to add another set of foster parents online is to connect the child to the grandparents. To do so follow this FAQ:

How do I use the online Connect / Remove Connection feature?

Then set them as adopting.

If you have any more questions, please let me know.

Best Regards,

Hi LIor,

Thank you very much for the explanation.

Using the suggested method doesn't solve my problem as you can see in the attachment.

Just out of curiousity, did the grandparents formally "adopt" or become official foster parents, or did they just take over?

I haven't found out yet - but both as far as I remember both parents died when the children was very young
