Pedigree view now in the tree


Published on 12 Dec 2012 14:40 : 10 comments : 1363 views

Today we have added the Pedigree view to the tree. This means you can see the root person plus their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents all on one page. You can see the pedigree view for any person in your tree. Click on a person in your tree and then select Pedigree from the list of views at the top.

There is the option to print this view out too. Just click on the printer icon in the top right hand corner of the tree. 

In the near future we plan to add arrows to indicate if you can go further back down a particular line. This is a great way of easily seeing where the gaps are in your tree.

Hi, just a quick note to say the Pedigree view was removed from the site. We're hoping to release it again on Genes at some point next week. Thanks, Rachel, Genes Support Team

Would be better if you just brought the old site back. Have not done anything proper for the last 3 months,
