Gibt es in einer ihrer Familien eine interessante Person wie Mark?

Der Dativ ist der Fall und es müsste ihren anstatt ihrer sein, weil Familien Plural ist, oder?

Übrigens bin ich nur Niveau A2.1, aber ich weiß schon, dass Genitiv ein Fall ist.

    The same comments on the spelling again ^^ The beginning of sentences, names and nouns are capitalized in German. And there are no spaces before punctuation characters! The use of an proofreading software e.g., languagetool.org helps to avoid such easy errors.

The sentence is parsed this way: "in einer (Dativ, singular) ihrer (Genitiv, plural) Familien". In English it would be "in one of their (or "of her"!) families".

Note that "in einer Ihrer (capitalized) Familien" means "in one of your families".
