Re: Curved lines on Diagrams
Sorry to disagree with Mike, but multiple relationships can appear in any standard diagram type. The questioner (pc45family) says "when I create ancestor trees or descendant trees the lines do not appear" but it depends who the diagram root is.
If the couple have a common ancestor in your mother's and
father's branches then the duplicate couple will certainly appear
in the All Relatives diagram with you as the diagram root, along
with duplicate descendants of that couple. But the duplicate
couple (without their descendants) will also appear in an
Ancestors diagram with you as the root. And they and their
duplicate descendants will also appear in a Descendants diagram
where the diagram root is the common ancestor of them all.
The simplest way to tidy up the diagram is to keep the ribbons
linking the duplicate couple themselves (to make it clear what the
relationships are) but to hide one duplicated set of their
descendants by clicking on the expansion button below one of the
occurrences of the couple.
