           var recordIds = '{!selected}';
           var Objectname = 'Childobject__c';
           var action = 'Edit';
           var fieldsetName = 'Myfieldset name';
           
          if(recordIds!='')
          {
              Redirect(recordIds,Objectname,action,fieldsetName);
          }

            window.history.back();
          }
            };
      </script>

Hi Linda, I don't think you can add parent field to field set. But you can try to create a formula field that refers to parent field in child object. Then add it to field set.
