Were Those Adopted Children Related?

Don't always assume that "adopted" children were unrelated to the family. There could have been some relationship between the adopted child and the parents. The child could have been the grandchild of the couple or a child of a sibling or other family member. But there's also nothing saying that the adopted child was related either. It's just something to think about.

  1. I have this situation for my great grandfather. The story is that he was adopted by his father but the lady who raised him wasn't his mother. How do you go about proving something like that.. Can you prove. I've thought of DNA but there is no male descendant.

    If nothing else it will provide me an excuse for a trip to Kingston, Ontario to see if I can figure it out.
