The Set Relationship in the Tools menu does not give the

same  results, as the report from the List Relationship.

WHY ?

Where do you find a "List Relationship" command?

 

I tested Tools - Relationship Calculator for two persons in my RM database, and the results matched those in the Status Bar (generated by the Tools - Set Relationships command) as "Sixth cousin 4 times removed."

 

What discrepancy are you seeing? We need more detail in order to answer your question.

Hmmmm.... Is it possible that you added Maria Castillo to your database AFTER running Tools - Set Relationships?

 

If yes, then go to your Root Person (or the base person for your relationship calculations), run T - SR again, and re-compare with the Kinship List result.

Ah, yes, that will be true. The Kinship List provides info on marriages to direct "blood" relatives, whereas the Set Relationships tool only provides the direct "blood" relationships. That was by design, I'm certain. And, not surprisingly, various researchers prefer to use one or the other as their primary reference for relationships. I frequently re-do the Set Relationships tool when I'm adding and merging individuals, so that the status line info is current with my research.
