Could someone please tell me why on my profile only 8 family members show up in my statistics while on my daughter's profile it has 86? (There are only 10 on her dad's side so far, so I know its not that)
Hers shows all her great grandparents, which of course are my grandparents who DO NOT show up on mine. I do not understand!

I just added my sister. Her profile's statistics show 75 family members. She and I have the exact same family! Why do I only show 8? This is driving me CRAZY!!

Help please explain.

Carol,
if I look at your list of ancestors, I'm seeing all of them to. You have 2, 4, 8 and 8 of parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and 2nd great-grandparents. Your husband has 34 ancestors, so that's how many more than you that your daughter has. But in BOTH cases you and your daughter's list of ancestors "max-out" at 5000, which is the maximum number of profiles that ANY list will show.

It IS very strange that your Family-Group has 10 people in it, while her's has 90, especially as some of those missing in your are shared blood-relatives. I have a suspicion that perhaps you changed the default definition for the extent of this group. Please check the following link:

To achieve the maximum sized Family-Group, the first two fields should read: "4th cousins and closer", and the 3rd should be "Inlaws out to 1st cousins". Anything less than that, will reduce the number of relatives that are listed.

Hope that helps,

OffTopic, but Private User why you are numbering your family members such a way? (currently #1 to #7)

iT IS MY SYSTEM OF KEEPING TRACK OF WHO IS WHO AND HOW THEY RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER.
