Incomplete Maps

Note that, as all Geography View modes, ONLY the Places with a defined Longitude & Latitude will be plotted.

Ancestors Map Geography view

Ancestors Map Geography is an interactive Charts Geography category view addon that maps family tree in the form of a grid. This map add-on plots Places associated with Ancestors of the Home Person.

Serge Noiraud posted an "Ancestors Map" View add-on. This

Each map pin has a pop-up listing the Events & People at that Place.) Change the designated Home Person to map a different set of Ancestors.



You can set up a multi-stage of filter that show only Places for Ancestors & configure the Places view to show the Longitude & Latitude. This will tell you how many of Ancestor related Places will be omitted from being map plotted.

For this multi-stage custom filter, I create the following Cascade of custom filters:

1) Person custom Filter "ActivePerson" using the "Active Person" add-on rule. (New incredibly useful add-on Rule. It makes Filters MUCH more dynamic. Thanks Paul!)

2) Person custom Filter "ActiveAncestors" using Ancestral filter "Ancestors of <filter> match"; filter=ActivePerson {You might add a 2nd rule to include the Active person where "At least one rule must apply". Otherwise, the Events & Places of the Active Person might be omitted}

3) Places custom Filter "ActiveAncestorEvents" using General filter "Events of persons matching the <person filter>"; person filter=ActiveAncestors

4) Places custom Filter "ActiveAncestorEventPlaces" using General filter "Places of events matching the <event filter>"; event filter=ActiveAncestorEvents
