I'm interested in the list readers' thoughts concerning the following. A
husband and wife have two children. The marriage ends in divorce...the
mother remarries and the ex-husband gives up all rights to his two children.
The two children are then known by their adoptive father's surname. All
family members know the biological and adoptive father's. The original
husband would be noted, of course, as the woman's first husband and
biological father of the two children. But should the children be entered
only under their adopted surname or should the biological surname be
included in parenthesis along with the adopted surname? Or, is there
another way of entering this situation in a genealogy?
