Re: How To Print Every Individual

Diane,

A "butterfly" or "hourglass" or "bowtie" chart may be what you are looking for. I think PAF Companion has the ability to print a chart of the ancestors and descendants of an individual, but I doubt that siblings of ancestors are included, and I think it is just a chart not a report. But if you search Google for:

print ~genealogy chart (hourglass OR butterfly)

you may find items of interest.

One description I found is at:
http://www.ancestry.com/learn/library/article.aspx?article=3993

"PAF Companion adds the following reports that are not in the basic PAF program:

Family Group Record–A printed version of family group view in LDS format.

Standard Family Group–A variable format that will print all user-defined events. This is a new feature added to PAF Companion 5.0.

Kinship—Print all relatives of an individual with their relationship(s).

Hourglass Chart—A box chart that prints both ancestors and descendants for an individual. This is a new feature added to PAF Companion 5.0.

Pedigree Chart—Traditional LDS pedigree chart of an individual's ancestors.

Ancestor Chart—A box chart of an individual's ancestors.

Fan Chart—A unique "fan" presentation of an individual's ancestors. You can also print a full circle or quarter circle chart.

Ahnentafel—An individual's ancestors prepared in a book format together with an index. Different from the other charts and reports, the Ahnentafel is output directly to your word processor for further editing and printing.

Descendant Chart—A box chart of an individual's descendants.

Outline Descendant—An outline report of an individual's descendants indented by generation. This is a useful summary report because only one line per person is printed.

Register—An individual's descendants prepared in a book format together with an index. Like the Ahnentafel, the Register report is output directly to your word processor for further editing and printing."

The article incorrectly mentions charts that ARE available in PAF 5.2, but maybe they were not available in PAF 5.1.

Hmm ... the example on Progeny's website http://www.progenygenealogy.com
just shows photos and captions in an hourglass report. Maybe there is a text version too?

I hope that this will be of some help. If not, Google may provide better options.
