Wife's Grandfathers Are Brothers - Pedigree Chart Difficulty

14 January 2019 - 09:11 PM

My wife's grandfathers are brothers making my wife's parents first cousins.  How do I enter the brothers' common parents in the RM data base?  No matter how I do it, my wife's pedigree chart eventually splits into two identical/duplicate charts, one corresponding to each of her grandfathers.  Is there a best way to do this and avoid the duplication?





Non-biological Relatives on Lists and Charts

10 January 2019 - 10:42 PM



I'm new to RM 7 and I'm confused about three relation reports:  Relation Chart, Kinship List, Relationship Calculator

Biologically related individuals appear on all three as I would expect.  But what about non-biologically related individuals such as spouses of biologically related persons, adopted children, step children and step parents?  Some appear; others do not.


For example, on a Kinship List, a step parent of a start person will appear.  A step child of a start person will not.  Other inconsistencies on the three reports occur with adopted children.


Is there some rule which consistently determines which names should appear and which should not?
