Q&A: How would one signify an adoption on a traditional family tree?

Question by Ziggy Stardust: How would one signify an adoption on a traditional family tree?
Say a sister adopts her sister’s children. Does this get recorded on the tree, and if so, what does it look like?

Best answer:

Answer by Glen F
What do you mean by a “traditional” family tree? What do you want your tree to look like?
Are the children doing a school project? Or is the family tree to be a work of art framed to hang on the wall? Is the family going to be placed on a public site Ancestral File or Ancestry.com?
And then there is the matter of the father of the children. How is he going to be recorded?

When using any of the commercially available genealogy programs both sets of parents can be linked to an individual. And a notation can be made of the adoption.

Genealogy today is about DNA, and citing reliable sources.

It used to be about family stories, hiding family secrets and keeping the skeletons in the closet and connections to events in history (the Mayflower, Revolutionary War …)

There can be no definitive answer with out more information.

Does signing away parental rights in NC mean you get no visitation? What does adoption mean, legally?

Question by pegasis: Does signing away parental rights in NC mean you get no visitation? What does adoption mean, legally?

my fiance was asked to sign away complete parental rights in exchange for forgiveness of back arrears. If he takes this deal does this mean that he will not be able to see his kids age 14 and 16?
also she has been keeping the kids from him for 6 years, with a domestic violence order.

Can you help me to find evidence about the nature of the adoption industry?

Question by grapesgum: Can you help me to find evidence about the nature of the adoption industry?
Okay – I have known for a long time that adoption is big business in America. However, I did not realize how blatant adoption professionals are about the tools of their trade (see below from one of their WEB sites). Does anyone else have any evidence to add?

“How Adoption Agencies Can Find Birthmothers

Since a large majority of people that choose to adopt a baby will do so through an agency, it is obviously an important priority for the agency to have a constant flow of birthmothers entering their programs. For nonprofit adoption agencies, their mission is to reach out to women who find themselves pregnant and unable to raise the child. Therefore, in addition to connecting adoptive families with children, the agency exists to serve the needs of women in the community.

For profit adoption agencies will be trying to find the birthmothers in order to raise revenues and provide financial payments to the owners and directors.

Adoption agencies will generally have a recruitment budget and staff that have the sole job of finding birthmothers and “selling” them on the agency’s programs and services.”
Thank you for more evidence which I will add to my files. I can’t decide which self-admitted adoption industry practice is more disgusting, so I will ask the voters to choose.

I always thought that the largest majority of adoptions were from foster care…….

Do you have any other links that say it’s through agencies?

thanks

What is in the umbrella of adoption?

Question by Gershom: What is in the umbrella of adoption?
In light of some thinking adoption is just a black and white issue, I wanted to invite you to this link to look at what I call the adoption concept map and leave your feedback on areas that need reform.

This is something myself and many others, adoptive parents, adoptees, and parents who have surrendered children to adoption have contributed to, in order to pinpoint where reform is needed, to understand the umbrella of adoption more clearly and to create programs to improve the current machine of adoption.

Your insight on whats missing is welcome!
