This option has no effect unless the ‘from’ record (parameter 1) is an Individual record. In that case, the number of links returned is the sum of both (a) all links from the Individual’s record (the ‘from’ record) to the ‘to’ record (parameter 2), and (b) all links from the Individual’s spouse family records to the ‘to’ record. This is useful because often with Individual records (especially as regards source citations) it is convenient to be able to treat associated spouse family records as if they were part of the Individual record.
