Hi--I would like some suggestions about the most efficient way to find famous relatives for different persons in my extended family tree. The tree includes a number of people who are not directly related to me but who are related to sisters in law, wives of uncles, etc. ( I prefer a tree of this sort because I have found many connections using this method I would not have otherwise.) However, each search is very lengthy and I am sure I am not using the most efficient method possible to search for the famous relatives for other family members.

Would someone please give the steps for that most efficient and shortest search pattern? Thank you!

I have not tested this, but I believe changing the root person of your tree temporarily will allow you to search for famous relatives of the new root person.

Thank you for your response. Yes, this approach will work and this is the method that I have used previously when I wish to find famous relatives for other members of my family. I had hoped there might be a simpler method, hence the post. I do appreciate the quick and courteous answer.
