Hi All,

   How can I view the entire family tree including former spouses with their children? I have a former spouse (with whom I had one child) and a current spouse (with whom I have had 2 children. My great grandfather is the same...2 spouses, different children with each.

graphical trees with multiple spouses and children can be difficult to display properly -- as well as the fact that they can grow wildly out of control really fast.

its possible to do, but not easy to do well.

I don't believe WikiTree has any such mechanism currently.

The Descendants chart here can show you all of a person's children, including multiple spouses, but it won't show the spouse's children with other partners. Here's the chart for one of your great grandfathers:

PS - And I see from that that kind of chart doesn't tell which spouse was the parent of which children.
