The Lines of Descendency Report ([http://gramps-addons.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gramps-addons/branches/gramps33/download/LinesOfDescendency.addon.tgz downloadable here]) is a small report which will print out all lines of descendency between a given ancestor and a given descendent one after the other in the format shown below (using the GRAMPS example data). People on the left build the continuous line and those on the right are their correspondent spouses. You need to select the ancestor and descendent at the start of the report.

Lines of Descendency Report - example

The Lines of Descendency report prints out all lines of descendency between a given ancestor and a given descendent one after the other in the format shown below (using the Gramps example data). People on the left build the continuous ancestral line and those on the right are their corresponding spouses.

Usage

You can access the report from the following menu Report > Text Reports > Lines of Descendency Report...

From the reports People tab select the Ancestor and Descendent using the Select a different person buttons.

Example output

                    '''Lines of Descendency from Smith, Ingeman to Smith, Craig Peter'''

 '''1. line:'''

 1. Smith, Ingeman m. Ericsdotter, Marta
 2. Smith, Martin m. Jefferson, Elna
 3. Smith, Martin m. Hansdotter, Kerstina
 4. Smith, Gustaf Sr. m. Hansdotter, Anna
 5. Smith, Hans Peter m. Jones, Lillie Harriet
 6. Smith, Lloyd m. Green, Janis Elaine
 7. Smith, Craig Peter

 '''2. line:'''

 (...)

Notice that even though the example data of Gramps does not offer a possibility to display this, the report makes no distinction between the male and female line. So a hypothetical output such as the one below is also proper:

                    '''Lines of Descendency from Smith, Ingeman to Nielsen, Augusta'''

 '''1. line:'''

 1. Smith, Ingeman m. Ericsdotter, Marta
 2. Smith, Martin m. Jefferson, Elna
 3. Smith, Martin m. Hansdotter, Kerstina
 4. Smith, Margareth m. Green, Hans Gustaf
 5. Green, Peter Lloyd m. Jones, Elisabeth
 6. Green, Anna Maria m. Nielsen, Edwin
 7. Nielsen, Augusta

 '''2. line:'''

 (...)

  • Add option to include sources.
