Re: Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Probably me being dumb, but won't that omit the sentence for first cousins, and others who would be the same generation?

Re: Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Hi Mike. It works fine and was easy to add. Thanks. A bit of feedback in case it helps others. In the Descendants by Generation report the generation test also cuts out a lot of first (and no doubt other) cousins from having their relationship described. So I just used the text function without the ...

Re: Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Thanks Mike. Good news about the project specific approach, I will do that. On what I said about the Reports dropdown, I meant it would be nice to have this as an Option, say on the narrative report's Options Main Tab where you can for instance tick the box to add Notes, you could click a box to add...

Re: Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Mike. An implementation question. I have 3 FH projects. Will this amendment apply to all projects, or just the project I amended it in? And a supplementary, is there something in the GEDCOM definition that forbids this relationship to root from being an attribute or fact that we could simply add fro...

Re: Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Hi Mike. And now a reply to your question. I think it would inded be best after the 'was born' sentence. Good question about close relatives, and it would be a little redundant in those cases, but I could live with it. I can see how it could be done in diagrams and will try it out. I would be really...

Adding relationship to Root to narrative reports

Hi. Is it possible to add the relationship-to-root attribute to each person so that it appears in narrative reports, and on diagrams? So that for each person in the report it would say what their relationship to the root person was? The text in a report would be something like "Joseph Smith is the <...

Re: How related in list form

Hi. Is there a way to have this included in narrative reports please? So each person's description would include something like "grandfather of..." or "second cousin once removed of..." Thanks.
