Thanks Nettie. Is there no report I can use that includes all the members of a family? Sue
In a word, no. Support for what you ask is a long term wish list.
The only two approaches presently are to "come down the other side of the family" as Nettie mentioned, or to add the person as a child to couple who raised him with a note about what the true relationship actually was. That's the approach I use for reports I take to family reunions. For example, I have a cousin who married a woman who had a daughter from a previous marriage. The birth father had nothing to do with raising the daughter, and she was raised by my cousin and his wife. There was never a formal adoption. So I enter the daughter from my cousin's wife's previous marriage as if she were the daughter of my cousin and his wife, and include a note about the actual situation.
