It’s just exactly the kind of feature that I would’ve asked for if I’d known it could be done.
Now, if you can just make it possible to search my tree for people by their locations, I’d be a happy camper!
Keep up the good work.

This would be useful.

Has helped me immensely in cleaning up my tree of who and who is really not related. What a great feature. Thank you!

The relationship calculator calculates the closest relationship-period.

A relationship (either by blood or marriage) to a third cousin twice removed is a closer relationship than to a third cousin three times removed.

As others have remarked, sometimes one has more than one relationship to an individual, but the calculator only recognizes one. As an example, I have a female person whose husband is a third cousin 2x removed from me; however, her father is a third cousin 3x removed from me from a different line, but the calculator only recognizes her as the wife of my 3rd cousin 2x removed, and not as an actual “blood” relative. Doing a recalculation did not correct the situation.

When I needed to figure out a relationship I always had to stop and open Reunion to figure the relationship. Having it right in front of me on Ancestry is a huge help.

And thanks to those who were quick enough to realize that quotes in the name are what was causing the bug for the relationship feature not to work. I was stumped as to why I could not get the relationship for my great grandaunt Rosario “Rose” Garcia to show! It’s a bit of a pain to revise the name, but working at an Internet company I know these things come up and need fixing once found.

I’ll throw my vote in for the relationship display to be a global option.

Great work, Ancestry!

I’m not sure you can. I just did a screen shot and then open it in paint and trim off what I don’t want.

How can I can I make a copy of it without showing the background page? Carol Handley
