Ann, I have puzzled over this query since I first saw it posted. What you appear to be asking for is a chart that will show all of your end of line ancestors, then show all their descendants down to the present day. Is that correct? If it is I have not come across such a program, and I have or have experimented with just about all available genealogical programs. If such a chart could be created - on paper - it would be monstrous (in size) to say the least. Depending on your database size, you could be looking at several hundred or more square feet of paper!

However, on the other hand if you are looking for a way to demonstrate your research - in full - you could create a "chart" on a CD for distributing to interested researchers or relatives. A program with this capability is GedHTree (full version). You will find it at:
http://www.gedhtree.com/
I wont go into a full explanation of GedHTree here as you can read all about it in detail and view examples on the site. It is however, the most complete of any web creating programs for genealogical records I have come across.

It's not quite what you are looking for, but it certainly will create a visual display of your records.
