RE: Descendant Tree
- Thanks for this, Charlie. I'm still playing around with the ideas. Once I
get something to work to my satisfaction, I'll post something about my
experience and point to an online portrayal of the result.
Both you and Suddie had good suggestions

It is possible to create a custom descendancy chart with Legacy, although
1) Use the tagging facility to tag the individuals you wish to include.
2) Export the tagged individuals (with or without spouses) to a new Legacy
3) Go to the new file and view and/or print your edited descendancy chart.
It may be also possible to use the Gramps program to create a custom chart
do what you want, although I have not tried it.
