Re: "View relationship to me" Relationship Calculator

I'm having a real problem with the relationship calculator. I have one family tree with all branches of the family in it, including my current husband and my ex-husband. The two of them have several relatives in common.

If I set the home person to my current husband, and check the relationship of a person to whom both he and my ex are related, on some individuals I will get the expected result "so and so is your 22nd GGmother". While on other individuals I will get the result "so and so is the 20th GGmother of the husband of your wife" which means the lineage is being drawn through my ex-husband's family.

I called support and they had no idea why it was acting like this. I checked for duplicates in my tree, I don't have any and I can't find any bad relationships. FTM calculates the relationships correctly. Does any one have any idea why it does this, and short of splitting my tree what I can do about it?

Our adult children really like the relationship calculator but as it stands it is basically useless.
