Adopted child not showing on tree
Deleted member
- Close

In hopes that someone at myhertiage may actually read this and do something about it...

I marked my cousin as adopted and it's fine in the FTB but when published online, she does not show up on my tree. She is still listed on the list of people in my tree to the left so when I click on her info, she appears in the tree view as completely on her own, no other names around visable. Surely this is a mistake? Just because a person is adopted doesn't mean she isn't a part of the family. I would like her to show up next to her brothers on my tree (who are not adopted).

We are actually in the process of adding the ability to add people to your online family tree that are not biologically related to the tree.

This should be coming soon! We appreciate your patience.

  Hello Esther I would like to give a personal opinion around the issue with adopted kids in a family tree. I’m glad that you’re working on a new interface where it will be possible to add people that are not biologically related to the family, but I think that adopted kids should have a more privileged relation than anyone else who is not biologically related to the family. In our modern secular societies adopted kids consider often their adoptive family as their ancestors, as much or even more than their natural family. It might be old-fashioned, or just specific to some religion or culture, to consider primarily blood relations in a family tree.Thanks a lot for your good work

Hi Nicolas,

 

Of course you are right. We have already incorporated this relationship in Family Tree Builder, and it will soon be added to the Family Site as well.

Yes, I agree.  I have several adoptees in my famil, and I can't fathom why that information wouldn't translate from the software to the online tree.  Please give us an updated ETA!
