c1-3 belong in the first family.  c4 in the second one.  I wouldn't
add c1-3 to the second family as well.

If c1-c3 actually lived in that second family, then adding them there is a correct action.
When navigating down in a descendant tree, it is important to not only select a child, but also to know what mother must be shown when the child is selected. Probably that is why in those places you see them double.
If so, a better way of showing this would be usefull.
