How do I create a group of my direct ancestors


This is an easier way to make an Ancestor's Group instead of marking every person manually:

  1. Open the side bar and click on the "Groups" tab/icon. (far right icon)
  2. Inside Groups, next to the drop down box is another "Groups" icon, click on it.
  3. Click on "New" to make a new group.
  4. On the Select people screen, mark yourself.
  5. With yourself still highlighted, click on the Mark people button.
  6. Select Ancestors of highlighted person.
  7. On Ancestors option screen, Direct Ancestors only will already be checked. Leave it checked.
  8. If you need to change the generation for more than 10, make that change and click OK.
  9. The screen will return to the Select People screen.
  10. You can manually unmark yourself if you don't want your name in the Group.
  11. Click OK and name the Group.

This will give you the same ancestors that are on the Pedigree screen.
