Overview

The Family Sections item in the Person Entry list controls the inclusion of family information in the person entry which shows spouses and children of the subject.

The Family Section may include zero, one, or more family entries. The number varies with the number of families where the subject was a parent or spouse.

The Family Section content varies according to the properties of this item and by strings and sentence templates specified in the Family Section Strings and Family Heading Sentences Strings sections.

Properties

Show Title

If the Show Title checkbox is checked, the Family Section will begin with a title. The title text varies based on the number of families where the subject was a parent or spouse, i.e., "Family" or "Families". The actual titles are specified in the Family Section Strings section. The default value is unchecked, and the title is omitted.

Spouses

The Spouses pull-down menu controls whether GedSite creates a family section on the person page for childless spouses. If Spouses is set to All spouses, a family section is created for all spouses. If Spouses is set to Spouses with children, a family section is created only for spouses with whom the subject had children. The default value is Spouses with children.

Heading

The Heading pull-down menu influences how the Format constructs the title and contents of the Family Section. The choices are:

Value Example Output
Children of ... Children of George Bezanson and Mary Millet
Family N: ... Family: Mary Millet, b. 1775, d. Mar 1844
Use heading sentence Partner: Mary Millet (b. 1775, d. Mar 1844)

Heading Label

When Heading is set to Use heading sentence, the Heading Label property determines the label or prefix for the parent section heading. The default value is an empty string, and the contents of the Family Section heading is determined by the Heading Sentence.

Heading Sentence

When Heading is set to Use heading sentence, the Heading Sentence property determines the content part of the parent section heading. The default value is shown below, but you may alter the sentence to suit your needs.

The spouse, partner, or co-parent of the subject, if any, may be referenced by the role variable [R:Partner].

The default heading sentence is:

<Partner: [R:Partner]<[R:Partner:LSP]>|Children:>

You may use the [M:Number] variable to refer to the sequential family number.
