Multiple Wikitree ID in one post and 8 generation descendants list

(1) Yesterday I posted here concerning a blog that discussed 5 Wikitree profiles.  Unless I missed the boat, it is no possible to enter more than one ID.  Some thought should be given to changing this.

 

(2) The Descendants list is a very useful tool.  It could be made even more useful if it could extend for eight generations.

Are you speaking about G2G?

To do more advanced reports you can also download a Gedcom file and use a tool like The Complete Genealogy Reporter 

Yes, I am referring to the G2G2 editor.

 

Thanks, I will check the Complete Genealogy Reporter.
Hi Hugh,

You can see 15 generations of descendants with our Family List feature: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:FamilyList

Chris
Thank you.

Hugh

I agree with Hugh--the more generations, the more useful. Yes, It takes a long time to load the 15 gens, but worth it because revealing.

To Magnus and others: the only tree* I could download to a gedcom file is full of errors. I'm trying to be very careful about what I add here on this site,  but when I see the 15-gen Family List, I see names that have had to come from someone in Wikitree deciding their tree and mine should be merged, so I have many people I've never heard of and can't stand up for in my now 15 gen Family List. Should I consider these valid names for my tree if they haven't shown up on my error list?

       *Well, not exactly accurate: I have three trees for one family on my ancestry.com list. The largest one is the problematic one**. If I gedcommed it, I wouldn't want to have anyone here at Wikitree involved in cleaning it because that is like cleaning the dump except for the 2000 1/2-gallon milk cartons which must be piled neatly according to condition found. Simply unfair, don't you agree?

** I do have a somewhat smaller, more cautious and mindful one but it's very incomplete. My thought is to proceed with it as my "working tree," taking suggestions to analyze prudently from the larger one before adding to my more cautious tree. Does that sound practical to you? It seems to leave me asking questions perhaps too regularly.

Well if the idea is to lead people to the blog, you can list the names of the people in the question and put the URL for the web site in the first line below the message.  You could even give the ID numbers after the surname(s) in the Question if you think people may want to see if that person is on their watch list before going to the web site.

Thanks for the reminder.  I rarely use the URL's but they work.
