All of them. There can be a dozen or more siblings or children in their windows. I've got one father in my database with 24 children. I'm not sure why there couldn't be the same thing with parents-in-law.

Ah. Okay. I just tried it out. To get the correct husband to show in the Children's window when I'm looking at the father's detail record, I needed to switch to the daughter's record, switch to tree view, change the husband to the right one, double-click the father's name and then go back to the person view. Whew! At least there's a way to do it, so I can get what I want. Thank you. I never use the Family or Tree Views, so I would never have found it on my own.
Referring back to the first part of this email, if there had to be a limit to one set of parents-in-law, it could be done the same way, I guess.
The main reason I would like this is because I lose my place sometimes when I'm entering stuff. My database is for my husband's and my ancestors, and I am including siblings, siblings' spouses and siblings' spouses' parents. It would make it easier when I look at the record for a brother if I could see whether or not I've got his wife's parents already or if I need to find them. Only when his wife's (or wives') parents are found do I consider that brother "done." Also, I love the way I can navigate to the siblings-in-law and children-in-law through their windows. It would be great if that navigation were available for parents-in-law as well.
