Re: [Gramps-users] including spouses in charts

Martin Hawlisch
Hi!

I remember having seen a book that used numbers to indicate the mother of the child, if the father was having multiple partners. That works very well, because you see the birth order of the children instead of having them grouped per mother.

+---------------+      1)  +---------------------+
| Doe, John     |-----+----| 1956, Doe, Louis    |
| 1936 - 2006   |     |    |---------------------|
| 1) marr 1955  |     |2)  |---------------------|
|   Huber, Jane |     +----| 1957, Doe, Martha   |
| 2) marr 1958  |     |    |---------------------|
|   Reed, Maria |     |3)  |---------------------|
| 3) not married|     +----| 1965, Bonnet, David |
|   Bonnet, Sue |     |    |---------------------|
+---------------+     |2)  |---------------------|
                      +----| 1968, Doe, Donna    |
                           +---------------------+


Cheers, Martin.
