So this guy Willem adopted 10 children, 3 of them were later legitimized as children of his son Daniel. Them I will put as the actuall father of those 3. Then 1 of them has a biological father stated, so that one will be there. But the other children he adopted only have a biological mother. Should I put both him and the mothers as parents of these adopted children. Because given the context of the time and place he might be the bio father of these children. Or should i only add him or the mothers as the parents?

There is an Adoption Template for anyone adopted that can be used.

Here is an example

There is a help page.

Also some set father as non-biological.

I'll set him as the father then, since the Bio fathers are not known. He also adopted the adopted child of his son, wich makes it more complicated.
