Can "View My Relationship" be updated to show shortest path and favor ancestors?
I understand that the view currently is alleged to show shortest path relationships but that is not the case if one is counting the number of hops. My experience is that it shows the relationship with the shortest number of hops on the initial leg. For example, my relationship to LYNQ-3X4 is that he is my 10th great-grandfather (12 hops). His mother, LT4K-SSJ, would be 13 hops but she shows as my 2nd cousin 2x removed because the MRCA for that relationship, L8PV-VLM, is only 12 hops back even though one must then go three more hops on the other leg to reach LT4K-SSJ (a total of 15). If I temporarily remove a relationship in that path, then it will correctly show her as my 11th great-grandmother.
This issue also exists when using RelativeFinder.org. The direct ancestral relationship does not register.
Simply favoring the shortest number of hops rather than the shortest depth would help with this specific problem but ideally, showing an ancestral relationship would be the way to go.
It would also be helpful to constrain paths to biological relationship only.
