Did you see the improvements to Family Group Sheets? (Lists of children w/ status e.g. DNA-confirmed; shareable images.)

Hi WikiTreers,

Many of you are familiar with our family group view, accessible from the "Family Group Sheet" link on pull-down menus that begin with a person's WikiTree ID.

This view illustrates husband-and-wife pairs along with children of their marriage. For example:

Family Group Sheet for Henry Plantagenet

A weakness of the family group view is that children are missing if their second parent is unknown or if the parents never married.

To rectify this, as requested by Dennis Wheeler, Anne B., and others, there is now a list of the person's children at the bottom of the page.

This list includes the relationship status between the parent and child, i.e. if the child is non-biological, uncertain, confident, or confirmed with DNA. It will also highlight if their other parent is unknown.

Also, as requested by Rosemary Jones, you can now create shareable images of family groups for use on Facebook or elsewhere.

Onward and upward,

Thank you very much Chris.

Wonderful! I use the Family Group Sheet view a lot (I find it especially useful after a merge to check for how multiple spouses and their children break out, and to check that dates make sense). Thanks for the improvements :D
Great - very useful Chris, thanks!
Liz, great idea about merging.  I'm checking that from now on.

Thank you Chris!

Thanks Chris and other of our Wikitree chefs (a metaphor, watch out (grin)!) for your ever watchful and creative eye for practical advancements to Wikitree. I should add an enjoinder, for those few of us who have children who will not have children, the addition is very nice for others, just not us. I nonetheless appreciate this advance for others' interests.
