I would like to have the option of creating a family group sheet that would include a mother; her illegitimate daughter by father unknown; the husband she then later married and her future children by him. This is a family from the 19th Century who lived together well as a family unit but is also relevant for many families today. Can this already be done? Does anyone know how to customise a family Group Sheet in such a way? Or could it be added when the 'reports' part of the software are 'modified' at a later date?

You can approximate this be adding the child to a second set of parents - the mother and the new husband. You can show in the RM4 Edit pane the relationship of each parent to the child. However, the reports, FGS or narrative, don't separate the natural children from the step (or adopted) children.

There is another thread that deals with this topic in additional detail. see http://www.rootsmagi...?showtopic=6367
