You don't have to do anything to "activate" pools. I think they are built into Family Historian and are maintained automatically. I first came across them in the standard query called Search For Orphans. I added a column to my records list of individuals with the pool number of each individual using the expression =RelationPool().
I'm sure other people have found other ways to use the pool number as well.
The key is in the word 'direct'. Your How Related report says there is no direct relationship between the two individuals, but it does show an indirect relationship, via a marrige between Adelbert William NORTH and the great granddaughter of Elijah Washington SHERWOOD.
Pool numbers are defined as follows: "2 individuals belong to the same pool if they are related to one another directly or indirectly."
This means that they don't use the same definition as an All Relatives diagram, for which a relative is any blood relative or spouse of a blood relative. Pools go further, and include blood relatives of the spouses of blood relatives, etc.
It has to work this way, because Adelbert William NORTH and his wife are in the same pool, and nobody can belong to more than one pool (they themselves join the pools together).
