The cousin relationship should be the reason for the duplicate appearances in **family view only**.

The "Family View" chart can not draw zig-zagged or diagonal lines to indicate cousinhood and marriage at the same time, so it shows each person's partial lineage plus each person's marriage.

The wisest course is always to first look at List of Persons and see if an individual is duplicated there, after making a mental note to the effect that there is a marriage between cousins that could be the reason for the duplicates in the FV chart.

Whenever holographic (virtual 3D) displays become possible, such chart problems should disappear, but there are a lot of viewing difficulties to overcome in that sort of format.
