I'd like to be able to sort or export a file of only my direct ancestors (grandparents) and their immediate families. It would be a file of those folks who would appear in my pedigree chart plus their children, but NOT their grandchildren or great grandchildren etc. How can I do this?
When I go to File/Export and select Filter partial, then select myself and "Ancestors" for the Relationship filter, I get 2200 individuals. I know this cannot be correct because I have 2450 individuals in my total database, which includes many, many collateral lines.
How do I further filter to achieve a list of only direct ancestors? What am I missing? Hope you can help!
