agree totally - I have just upgraded to FTM 2012 and am sorry that I did due to the fact that direct multiple descent relationships from single family groups are not showing correctly although in some cases they do, it is not consistent in how it displays this common genealogical issue. I have several multiple descents from siblings in the same family group and the Relationsship Calculator under tools shows a variety of realtionships including XX Great Grandparent but overrides this DIRECT realtionship in favour oof the more remote and obscure realtionships of 25th Grand Aunt /Uncle etc or Half cousin of 14th Great Grandfather's step daughter's sister's son etc. (LOL) - all may be interesting but a DIRECT realtionship e.g. BLOOD line should be the default one to display or there should be a way by which the user can select the realtionship that is the most direct to display. Using these remote relationships to display at the expense of a Direct Great Grandparent relationship compromises the integrity of the data and system. very disappointed that Ancestry does not recognise the importance of this glitch and fix it! I have spent countless hours of reviewing and examing data and re-entering and detatching people to try and get the correct realtionship to display and the only way it does is to detacht teh siblings form the family group which defeats the purpose and ethos and concept of Family Tree
