Unfortunately, the Custom Report facility does NOT have fields for parent or child, so that approach cannot be extended to cover your wish.
Just a note that <Father name> and <Mother name> *ARE* available fields, so:
- creating and naming a group marking all people with given name equals Mortimer
- followed by creating a Custom report with columns for Record number, Given name(s), Surname and Father name (or Mother name)
- then choosing the previously-created Group FirstNameMortimer from <People to include>
will produce a report to help narrow further. Unfortunately the <Options> for Sorting DO NOT include Father name nor Mother name, so more manual perusal is required than if sorting was more comprehensive.
