While I laud your design objectives, I think the
Descendancy Chart is counter intuitive for most people.
The main reason for using phpGedView was so that
relatives who do not have enough of an interest in
genealogy to get a program can still view my tree and
email me missing info that they might have. some
aspects of phpGedView are not very intuitive to people
who dont look at genealogical data often. One area that
can really use some help is the Descendancy Chart.
programs such as FamilyTreeMake have a "reverse tree"
layout. One web app that has this is the php based PHP
Gedcom Viewer from www.poplargedcomviewer.com.
Their sample tree can be viewd at
while most aspects of phpGedView are vastly superior
this tree should be a guide we follow. While I realiz that
for printing this tree would probably be too wide, at
least it is readible. I spent 15 minutes on the phone
explaining how the phpGedcom Descendancy Chart
worked to an elderly relative. I am still not sure that
they can fully follow the tree.
I realize that the RFEs are piling up but i just figure that
better to langwish in a list that will eventually have
potential to be done than to leave the list small.
Thanks again for a great program.
