When starting a conversation about sharing Genealogy information with a distant cousin, I often want to set a frame of reference for our genetic connection.
I could send a Deep Connections capture… But it is confusing that it stops at siblings without showing the common ancestors.
Currently, I prefer to copy our 2 Pedigree Gramplet data. Then prune those trees back to reveal the mutual connection… leaving the Spouse as well as the direct lines of descendants. (Because it is hard to navigate blended families without that.)
That’s a LOT of work. So if I need something quick, I might jump over to FamilySearch & capture a ‘View my Relationship’ screen.
But I’d really like something that clearly attractively illustrates simple binary Ahnentafel (aka Atree) in the Chart view. FamilySearch apparently has one like that too. (Although I’m not certain how to access it. Nor why there’s a weird jog in the top generation of the sample appended)
If it could show multiple Atrees simultaneously, that would be better. Particularly, if it was possible to show the branching of (multiple) cousin Atrees at a mutual common ancestor marriage.
Optionally, the ability to show diverging Atrees associated with Pedigree collapse would be helpful. (Charts of “I am my own cousin”.) So, for an Ancestor that has more than 1 Ahnentafel number for a particular descendant, chart each of those Ahnentafel paths side-by-side.
