I am researching the Boone family and find that the 30 generation relationship finder has me as a distant cousin to Rebecca Paine and her son Isaiah Webb.  On Isaiah’s profile page can be found a list of his immediate ancestors; his father Samuel Webb and Samuel’s parents John Webb and Mary Boone.

When I look for a relationship with the ancestors I get no results.  If I have a blood relationship with Isaiah I should have one with his father’s line correct?  So why does the relationship  finder say it cannot find such a relationship.  I can get a connection with the connection finder

According to the descriptions of the tools, the connection finder shows you the shortest path between any two IDs, and does consider paths through marriage.  The relationship finder shows only blood relationships:

So I think what that is saying is that you have a blood relationship to Isaiah through his mother, but you do not have a blood relationship to his father.
