#1192 earliest known ancestor report


What i miss, is a report of all earliest known ancestors (in Germany we call it Spitzenahnen). This means the report is running through your ancestry tree and grabs the earliest known ancestor of each branch. This mean, collecting this you have a list of all persons you can do further research on to extend your tree.

    Ancestry Chart -> 10 generations -> individuals -> roots

    Greg, thanks for your comment. I had not in mind this feature, but it's three quarters of the way.

    I found a lot of people appearing up to 4 times in the list selecting 15 generations. They have diffent Sosa numbers resulting from marriages between ancestors. Eliminating this would be one point showing only the lowest sosa number.

    The 2nd one is that its really difficult to find for a normal user. Perhaps a shortcut in the individual menu can solve this.

    The 3rd point is to have a nice pdf to give it to someone else. The printout generated from the print view doesn't really fit.

    The relatively new "Branches" (under Lists) also does the same thing - although on only one surname at a time.
    Not quite what you want, but it may have some useful code snippets?
