Kurt,
Kinda sorta. There is a way to "force" PAF to do what you want, but it is very inflexible. It will only work with a paternal line.
First highlight the first individual, say yourself. Click on the printer icon and the Reports and Charts box will pop up. Select the Custom tab. Choose "select" under select/filter focus, this will take you to the select individuals screen. There you can select "ancestors" under relationship filter. and click on select. This will make the Ancestors box pop up. Select the appropriate number of generations, sect 0 for descendent generations and deselect spouses and parents. Click OK. Next under Field Filter, select "define". From the Field Filtering box that pops up, set up your filter to "parental relationship equals biological" AND "Name(surname only) matches Odenwald" (or choose any appropriate last name). Click OK to close the Field Filtering box. Click OK to close the select individuals screen. Now set up your report by selecting, under Report Layout, the fields you would like to print. You can just print the names or any fields you would like to see. If you like, save your report by clicking on "save as" an save your report. Now just click preview or print.
Good luck,
Bob
