I'm trying to create a box chart between my husband and the furthest ancestor in one family line only.  How can I do that?  I have created a direct line in the Project Explore, but can't seem to get only that line to produce a one page chart.  Need help please.

See the instructions here for a similar situation :

 

http://www.whollygen...c=14849&p=60134

 

In this case, you would enter your husband's ID number in the 'Ancestor of' field and the ID number of his furthest direct line ancestor in the 'Descendant of' field.  You can choose whether or not to include spouses and siblings - and change the chart options as you prefer.

 

Note that the secondary output to create a new dataset copies the selected people - does not move them.

 

Ask if you have a question  -
