In order to import unicode GEDCOM files (i.e., GEDCOM in non-English), you will need to comment out Line 224: text = regClean.Replace(text,""); in FamilyShowLib\GedcomConvertor.cs.  This should correctly import unicode text in the names.  I'm not sure if line 164 also needs to be commented out.

Also, if you wish to add relationships to existing people (i.e., siblings marrying siblings), open the *.family file in a text editor and do so manually.  Remember to add each person to the other side or it won't work.  A list editor with 3 columns and a dropdown on the left and right hand side with all the names and the relationship type in the middle would be useful.
