Re: Marking DNA-proven ancestors in diagrams

Hi Jane,


There is a lot of discussion on this topic in the FHUG Forums.


Also, Jane Taubman has an online article that covers a lot of the techniques including marking Diagram boxes.



She uses a custom Event called GedMatch instead of a custom attribute called DNA Proven but the concepts are the same.

Subject: [family-historian] Marking DNA-proven ancestors in diagrams


Hi there


I would like to mark DNA proven ancestors as a default function in all diagrams. I am thinking something like defining a new attribute “DNA proven” which then changes e.g. the background colour in the boxes in all diagrams. I’ve already defined the custom attribute but I’m now stuck at how to change the background colour depending on whether the individual has this attribute or not.


Or is there an easier or better way of achieving what I’m after?


Kind regards

Jane Merkel
