I am trying to create a 4-generation pedigree chart. I have my focus person selected (my dad, but also tried with my mom). I click on options, I have it set for 4 generations. Under 'style', I have it checked for 4 generations. Under 'surety', I have it checked for no threshold. When I click on 'create report', the report has 'an unknown person' & 'an unknown person' as spouse, but no ancestors. I've closed and reopened the program, and still I end up with the same thing. I've used TMG for over 15 years, but haven't used the reports. I've got over 23,000 people in my database. I'm clueless as to what I'm doing wrong or need to do...
I thought I would share with you what you can do to create a chart that shows all persons in a project who are connected together. This single A0 (47" * 33") page has 254 persons on it. It was created in a number of steps and used flags to identify focus persons and overlaps of descendancy. The blue lines highlight the ancestry of a family but also shows the siblings and their descendants as far as they were recorded in the project. It is the result of 18 separate executions of Visual Chartform which have been edited and linked together. Where for the best use of space the chart has to be broken into pieces, then the curved dashed blue lines go between 2 boxes that represent the same person, usually a female who then becomes the wife in a more extensive chart piece. I present it to show that Visual Chartform is a very powerful creation and editing tool. RobinL
