When i look at my relationship with people, i only get to see one side.
But some are in other branches of the tree too...

Like i looked on a person which i know I'm like 5-6th cousin, it says blablabla more, because It shows how I'm related to that person through my fathers branch...

It should be possible to see all relationships with a person. And espesially the most relevant!

Is there any way to see other relationships to a person. Not only from one side??

I know it's not what you want, but there are a few tricks you can play to tease out this kind of information. For example, go to your Relatives list ( http://www.geni.com/list ) and click the link next to the page heading to show advanced controls. Type your mother's name in the focus person field, and change the group to Blood Relatives. Select other filters if you want to pare down the list, and click the Update List button at the bottom of the advanced controls -- the resulting list will show you whom you're related to through your mother, and their relationship to her.

Ahh, yea. Well i knew that.

But why doesn't it show the most relevant relationship?
It will show how im related, through my father, if there is any relationships through him.

It should show the closest relationship (by number of "hops" through people). If you've recently merged some profiles that ought to bring the relationship closer, it can take up to a week for the system to detect that.
