Not sure if I can explain this right........

Starting with me as Root person, I was following my grandparents as far as possible, using the identifier at bottom left of pedigree screen (or family screen or descendant screen). I have one line which goes to 9th great grandfather. Another line SHOULD show also show 9th greats..... But when I reach 6th great grandfather, it suddenly doesn't show his relation to me. 7th, 8th and 9th of that line also don't show relation.

I first thought it was something wrong with the records, so did some other testing. There are others that also refuse to identify themselves smile.gif One is in a different line and should show 4th great grandfather. His wife does show up as 4th great grandmother.

If it is a display only problem, that is fine. The people are well and truly attached, but just forget who they are in relation to me.

And if this sounds as confusing as I think it does, <sigh> let me know and I'll try to explain again. Could even produce a print screen if needed.

I did uninstall RM4 and reinstalled 4.0.1 and situation is the same. Have now reinstalled current upgrade.

Edited to say I was back in RM3 and discovered same situation with same person (people). There, I am shown 'F1 for Help' and 'Double click to edit person' ...... So this indicates a data problem? I am not seeing any problem, but all suggestions welcome. smile.gif

You may have already tried this, but if not, try running Tools, Set Relationships again. If changes were made, the relationship links may have to be rebuilt.

Thank you very kindly. I just love quick answers smile.gif Another user mistake and a lack of thinking. I forgot about that feature.
