Family Tree - Graphical Reports - Addon - example of results

The Family Tree report generates a graphical tree of a family with its ancestors and/or descendants. Similar to the standard builtin Ancestor Tree and Descendant Tree reports but with the following differences:

  • Both ancestors and descendants are combined in a single report
  • On the ancestors side, father and mother are combined in a box
  • On the descendants side, spouses are included
  • The report can be colored, with various coloring options
  • Marriage and divorce information is included and you have the option to print occupation and residence.
  • The names are printed in a bigger font than the dates and places (birth date, death date, etc)
  • This report has options to use the call name instead of the first name, or to underline the call name (only works with PDF output)
  • There are 3 predefined ways of formatting the birth/death/marriage/divorce data: year only, full date, or full date and place
  • This report makes better use of the available space for printing ancestors and the whole report is centered on the page, the boxes are also aligned in a more centered than top-aligned way

Usage

You can choose the Family Tree report with Reports ->Graphical Reports -> Family Tree...

The Family Tree report starts with a center family and can print both ancestors (to the left) and descendants (to the right).

Issues

  • Help button wrong page
  • 7018 : Family Tree report no longer underlines call name in PDF output
  • To activate callname handling, you need to apply the patch in 8003 uncomment in the FamilyTree.py the line

# menu.add_option(category_name, "callname", callname)

Caveats

  • The report uses <u>...</u> to underline the call name if the call name is a part of the first name. This only works with CairoDoc based output (direct printing, PDF export) and HTML output.
  • Printing on more than one page doesn't work, you usually want to use the "scale to fit on a single page" option.
