In the Edit Family Window there is a column showing the relationship of child to parent(s). I would like to see dual relationship columns - one for each parent - that, or more options for the existing column. I have instances where the child no longer lives with either of his/her biological parents and the present parents have differing relationships to that child, (i.e. adoptive father and step-mother).

I'd also like a place where a multiple birth could be indicated. In a program I formerly used, multiple births could be coded so that they were indicated on the family view screen.

In the suffix field, I enter "(twin)" as a workaround. Just a suggestion.

I would like to second this request. I would like to be able to say which parent is a "step" parent, when the other parent is a biological parent.

I would also like to add a request that we have the option to show this information on a report if we so desire. As far as I know (and I asked this on the board once), this "relationship" information doesn't show anywhere but in the family edit screen.

Thanks!
Linda

I second the request above about Step parent being selectable like adoption. I would also like to see these relationships depicted in reports. The adoption fact makes the assumption that the child was adopted by both parents. In my case most adoptions are by one parent or the other.

Thank you,
Dennis D.
