This template is used on a Person page to show that this person was adopted by a particular family.


Use "Add event/fact" to create a fact of type of "Other", then invoke this template by placing text of the following form in the "Description" field of the new fact:

{{AdoptiveParents | FamilyPageName }}

where FamilyPageName is the simple page name (without the "Family:"), like "George Washington and Martha Dandridge (1)".

When you use this template, it is particularly important to add sources and/or notes to the fact entry (using normal sources/notes entries) supporting the assertion about this adoptive child-parent relationship.

You should also add a corresponding "AdoptiveChild" template entry on the referenced Family: page. That template usage should give the page name of the page you use this template on.


  • {{AdoptiveParents| George Washington and Martha Dandridge (1)}}
