I can't get any results from an Ahnentafel report. Doesn't matter whether I print to screen, Word file, etc. I can pick a focus person, set the number of generations, and click Print & Save, but the results are always a page with the heading "Ahnentafel of an Unknown Person" followed by the entry "1. an unknown person" and that's the end of the report. The person I am choosing is definitely in the data and definitely has descendant generations.

Ray,

first, which TMG version do you use please?

Other than that:

- the Ahnentafel report provides the ancestors of a person, not his/her descendants.
- if you're i.e. using TMGv6 or later.... on the report options screen for an Ahnentafel report > General tab > "Surety".... make sure to check both: "Threshold 0" (zero) plus "Include blank surety".

Hope that helps.
Thanks, Vera

Thanks...the Surety settings did the trick. I was remembering the Ahnentafel report from my original DOS genealogy program that produced (obviously incorrectly) a descendant's listing rather than an ancestor listing.

Still using version 6 by the way...
