AQ: Drop-Line Charts









Just how are we related to each other?

Often when doing research, one learns of new relationships, cousins, in-laws, etc. This usually is an opportunity to have a colleague in researching family lines and perhaps  exchanging not only family information but also pictures and their family stories.

At some point, curiosity comes into the relationship as to just how two people are actually related.

Ancestral Quest handles these situations very easily through the "Line of Descent Drop-Line chart that can be created once two individuals have been identified as being related.

To begin this process, highlight the first person in the relationship and click on Print Reports and Charts which brings the following menu:



Click on Select and locate the Second Person which opens up the Find Individual/Marriage screen which allows you to either enter their RIN number or if you don't know their number, one clicks on Search for Individual and locate that person and click OK.

Next click on Verify and your results are shown as follows:


Next one has to click on Accept which brings you back to the Reports and Charts, at this point you can click on Print or Preview. In the Preview mode one can view the report. Here is a sampling:


Be sure to take advantage of the Line of Descent whenever and wherever needed, knowing that this chart can easily show two individuals exactly how they are related to each other!

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!


Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
