I have known people who fall on either side of this "issue" -
whether to show Charles or Clyde as the father of Clyde Roland.
I suppose that it would be personal preference.
My own opinion is to go with genetics - ie., list Charles as
the father, with notes to indicate that Clyde Roland was adopted
and raised by Clyde & Mable.
Certainly do NOT skip it - it is/was an important part of the life
of Clyde Roland! And probably some *other* parts of his life
wouldn't make sense if that part were left out!
> How do I find out about adoptions?
