RootsWeb.com site is down

Have you been trying to access genealogy pages this week only to find they are broken? They could be posted via RootsWeb.com. Something I didn't think of until today

Trying to access the passenger lists of Ships to NZ all week and thought the problem was just their listings. However a search this morning revealed it is all of the postings, pages, projects at RootsWeb.
The message reads...
We are experiencing some temporary Rootsweb site problems.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
Our development and web operations teams are working on the problem and we will have it resolved as quickly as possible.
Thank-you for your patience.


wishing them all the best in sorting it soon

how should we record the children of same-sex marriages on our family trees

Birth certificates are probably our most important identity document.
Their purpose is to record legal, not biological, parental status (as in adopted children)
Countries issue amended birth certificates after adoption to reflect the change, but as a statutory privilege, not in satisfaction of any constitutional right (the original record of the child’s biological parents is often preserved, although sealed against public access)

Therefore, how should we record the children of same-sex marriages on our family trees if the tree is made public?
Do we record the biological parents and work back on their ancestors for the descendents of these children who will one day be curious? OR do we record the same-sex couple as their parents and work back on their ancestors?

It would be far too 'confusing' and nearly impossible to add all 4 'parents' and their families and ancestors
