Dan's example

This is a dummy how a genealogical ancestor table could look. More ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated! (Was someting like this already done? I haven't found it anywhere/ Dan Koehl 13:01 Dec 9, 2002 (UTC)

A variation

Here is a variation on the original theme. I know that this is not the traditional format for an ancestor chart, however I believe a small break with tradition will afford us much space.

  • I changed this a bit so that it includes the Ahnentafel (or Kekule) numbers, which are in my opinion indispensible. Tables are still very confusing to edit, it would be possible, I think, for someone with the requisite programming knowledge to make a 'wiki-syntax' that takes a list of 16 names (proband plus ancestors 2-15) as an argument and displays it as this sort of table? -- Someone else 22:46 Mar 7, 2003 (UTC)
  • Good idea with Kekule. Some colors wouldn't harm? (Grey?) What I like with this concept instead of a picture, is that it's fast, it's just like a textpage, and its rather easy to insert the names (hyperlinks). As with the script, Someone, that sounds really even better. But until then, I think this is useable...Dan Koehl 02:13 Mar 12, 2003 (UTC)

  • Noooooo! That looks far too gaudy - Gaz 13:26, 2 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Gets the point across though --Phil | Talk 13:42, Apr 2, 2004 (UTC)
  • I've toned it down to see if that makes it any better (in 24 bit color) --Henrygb 17:50, 3 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Not a bit better - It is unnecessary anyway - It is accepted convention that the father is above and the mother below on this type of chart - Gaz 12:55, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)
