Elliott-16026 is 26 degrees from Henry VIII, but his son, Elliott-16027 has apparently no connections. Why does this happen, and how do I fix it?

William Elliott's profile has just been created today. He has been added as the son of John Elliot-16026. Connections to William's profile will be shown tomorrow.

Thanks for the star.

At this time, we can see that William Elliott is 27 degrees from Henry VIII.

Henry VIII is a special connection. Often "special" connections are enabled to famous people -- otherwise connections are usually limited to a much smaller number of generations.

Edward VI was not a notable though he briefly served as King of England, leaving the throne to his cousin, Lady Jane Grey.
