Is a step child considered a descendant?

You have asked an interesting question. There are different answers depending on the context in which the question is asked. The scientific and legal meaning of descendant is all the persons who have descended from a common ancestor. In this context, a step-child would not be considered to be a descendant. However, for purposes of inheritance, a legally adopted child and their issue are considered descendants. A step-child in a blended family who has not been legally adopted is not considered an heir at law. To a genealogist who is researching a family line, an adopted child would be noted as adopted and not a descendant of the blood. Similarly, to a medical researcher who is examining a troublesome medical history, an adopted child in the family line would not be considered a descendant.
