 [Gramps-devel] Multi-relationships in Relationship Calculator? From: Lorenzo Cappelletti - 2003-10-18 00:44:54 ```Hi everyone, I noticed that the relationship calculator reports at most one and only one relationship between two given individual. IMHO this isn't correct. Two people may be related in several ways. I found more than one=20 example during my research, not only about spouses with the same=20 surname. Without going too far away, my fianc=E9e's brother-in-law is my second cousin. When I get married to, his two children will be my nephew and niece because of my fianc=E9e. But they will also be my second cousins one removed (or something like that) because of her brother-in-law. Nowadays, this isn't so widespread here in Italy, of course. But it used to be no later than one and a half century ago, when people were born, lived, and died always in the same place. Moreover, I think the most interesting and funny thing of a=20 relationship calculator is to spot out unexpected or far-away=20 relationships. The big problem is that the calculation of all relationshiops involving two individual is a non-trivial task, IMHO. I thought about it the other day and I came up with a couple of solutions which are not straightforward. I'd like to know from you if you've ever thought about=20 that. =20 --=20 email: lorenzo.cappelletti@... ```
