Create a book in Descendant layout.. it's sorts the starting person as dead last!
Bob Donlon
- Close
I wanted to create a book starting with my grandfather and it was in Descendants format, so that it would start with him/wife and work down to Great-Grandkids. Problem is that it starts number1 person as the youngest Great-Grandkid and the person starting the book (my grandfather), it lists him at the end around number 80. Is it just me, or shouldn't it be the other way around?  Grandfather is #1, wife #1, kids #3-x, etc??? Thanks

Hi Shachar, The report/chart is ok, it's the book that's the problem.  When you create a book, it's in reverse order (newest person first, working backwards to the starting person... it should start with the oldest person and then go forward from there).  I am going to create another book and leave it in my account for you to  look at, and I'll reply back with a few things I think could be improved upon to make this site the top Genealogy site (ancestry is difficult). Let me know if thiat make more sense.

Hi Bob,

Sorry for the confusion, I thought you meant the descendent report.

I have seen your book report and understand what you meant.

This is the current design of the family book and it is not possible to change it.

I will forward a feature request to our development team about adding an option to choose the order of generations in the book report.

They will consider it and see if it is possible and I i will post a message as soon as there is an update about this issue.

 

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Shachar

Shachar,

If there's any input/testing I can help you with, please let me know.  My dad traced us back to 1796 and took him quite a few years, I would love to carry on his research and be able to offer my family (it's huge) books for each specific family.  

 THanks Bob
