Ancestors

  Introduction

The ancestor tab offers various options for examining a person's ancestors (or pedigree). Notice that with each view you can choose up to ten generations. Charts with the larger sized boxes will be harder to manage on your screen the more generations you choose. The default is set to 4.

  Standard view

The standard view shows a person's name and photo, with options for viewing information about the person in the box or moving the chart up and down the generations.

  Compact view

The Compact view contains no detailed information about the people in the chart but is a convenient way of having a quick view of a large family.

  Box view

The Box view shows the basic information about each person (though the information may be cut off and the only way to see the rest is to go to that person's page - click on the person's name).

  Text view

The Text view is like the Box chart but without graphics. Because it is a text view there are no interactive buttons though ==> is a link like the left arrow in the other charts.
If you are looking for a text view as in a word processor document you should use the Ahnentafel view.
