  1. Hi I have hundreds of these relationships but descendants charts are clear. Not this one. I linked a child to an unmarried mother, originally using her surname. The mother then entered into a defacto relationship and had two more children to her partner The screen shows this child is the first child and nothing wrong. Yet when I print descendant indented chart she is the last child and there is a small gap in the vertical line. You can hardly see it and now she is showing as the last child. I went through options many times and cant see what I may have accidently changed. I had taken out "unknown spouse". I have been trying to recall another incident where I do not have the father (unknowns spouse is not enabled) to replicate this chart but cant think of one. The ones I remember had fathers and the one I remember only had the one child. The family now want her to have the same name as the other children but of course this doesn't make any difference unless I relink her - but there should be no need to. I had also sent a descendant narrative where I had not taken out "unknown spouse" so this triggered the request. I can probably fix this problem by relinking but there is obviously a problem in my options so it may resolve one family but not others. It must be something very simple as I have over 70,000 family members and I have never come across this before. Many thanks in anticipation.
