What about the Shwigger?

 אחות נחשון מכאן למדנו- צריך לבדוק באחיה

According to the ספר חסידים שע"ו , you should check out not only her brother but also her mother. (Shwigger)
In 'שולחן ערוך אהע"ז נ':ה  it says that if one found out that the girl's sister converted he may back out of the Shidduch without any penalties. (seems good idea to check out  the sisters as well)

The שו"ת חתם סופר אהע"ז ח"א :קי"ג  there is no need to be concerned with the parents sibling.

The Steipler zt"l held, that the Chiyuv of לבדוק באחיה was at a time and place where all are Frum*.

In such a case if the brother is not  Frum, then we should suspect that there is a bad root in the Mishpacha.

In today's age where there are so many other distractions and the streets are flooded with immorality etc. If a son ch"v  goes off the Derech it is not the fault of the parents.
It is not a פגם (blemish) in the family and 
one may marry his sister".

  1. Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “…if Israel’s military power were ever to be diminished to the point that the combined armies of the Arab world could defeat it, I believe there would be another Holocaust.

    No Arab dictator who could defeat Israel and forebore from doing so would survive the continuing frenzy for jihad [Islamic holy war against non-Muslims].

    And an Arab military victory over Israel – unlike the Israeli victories over the Arabs – would not result in a mere occupation or even detention of Israeli Jews.

    It would result in a mass slaughter, designed to rid Arab holy land of Jewish intruders. Most Jews know this, though they rarely speak of it openly."

    they would be massacred - men, women and children alike."
