I have set my wife and I as the home family in ReunionTouch. Somehow my mother in law has become the Source person and I am the spouse of the daughter. I wish to change things so that I am the source and all people are listed relative to me.

[1] set the sidebar to "Relatives"
[2] go to your card
[3] click on your button and drag it over to anywhere in the sidebar, then release. Reunion will recalculate the relationships.

There are other ways to do this as well, for example:
[1] set the sidebar to "Relatives"
[2] go to your card
[3] click on the"Change" button on the top right of the sidebar, choose your options, and click "Identify"

I think those are the instructions for Reunion, while I think the question was about Reunion Touch.

The ReunionTouch FAQ (http://www.leisterpro.com/reuniontouch/questions/homecard.php) has:
How do I change the "home" family in ReunionTouch?

Go to the desired "home" family.
Tap the Tools button.
Tap Make this the home family.

Note: After downloading your family file to ReunionTouch, the "home" family in ReunionTouch is independent of the "home" family in Reunion.

It worked for Touch on my iPad as well.

Just to clarify something here, as there seems to be some confusion in the replies:

The Home Family and the Source person for relationships are two different settings.

In ReunionTouch, you set the Source person for relationships by tapping on a person's name button in the Family View and selecting "Find Relatives" from the menu that opens.

Setting the Home Family is done as A Hougie outlined.

HTH,
