I would agree, I'm not a fan of Ahnentafel but some prefer it and it
is a long-standing and widely accepted format.

The advantage of a Box Chart is that it can draw 10 generations on the
same page. Very useful to show "me" up 10 generations of fathers, for

Some people like Henry numbering. Outline is less useful IMO, although
I've seen it used before.

The National Genealogical Society Quarterly would disagree. :) (They
now require the "NGS Quarterly" system, the Modified Register format
but with numbers for all individuals, not just those with issue.)

Doesn't look like our list archives store attachments for me to
refresh my memory, did that sheet allow overlap of generations or did
each require its own column?

Both Ancestor and Descendent reports above are exhaustive, all data in
the database is published. At generation, there were options for
displaying children, notes, source (font, volume, citation text,
comments, use of "ibid.", footnote format), preparer, photos, fonts,
header, date format, individual index and number of columns, and
whether to print to screen, PDF, .txt, or .RTF.

An Ancestor report should not have descendants and vice-versa.

This is really just a variation of Ancestor report, only the fathers
without spouses and related family are shown.
