Genealogy Database Upload Images   Link

Dear Richard can you please advise!

I have been progressing through the Genealogy Database, adding members and checking that everything is working. With the exception of the People list all is well, but!

1 I want to added a Home Person which is myself to the Person Form.
2 I set up a table of family relationships, Mum, Dad, Aunt, Great Grandad etc.
3 My intention to show on the Person Table what relationship each person is to myself.
4 All fine but how to get this Text on my main person form?
5 So I made a Query of my PersonT, all ok no issues instead of using the PersonT.
6 In my query table I included the relationship text table to my person table
7 All worked fine, I saved my form, closed my Database. Then reopened my table only to find that now my table only shows the persons with the relationship text box filled in. Also now have lost 4 photos, on checking the file numbers are also missing for the photos. Also just seen that some photos will load but some will no an I get an error message (Attached)
8 If I return my database back to normal before I made my Person Form a query all works fine, but I want to show the relationship to the Home Person (Me).
9 Is there another way of including a text box on the form without making a query or using VBA?

I tried to attach 3 pictures to help my explanation but could not attach them, sorry.

Hope you can help!
