Is there a way to create a Marker set for just a paternal line or Maternal line? Selecting Ancestors gives both and includes more people than I want to include on the map. With many names reused by the lines of Henry's 20 kids I need a better way than manually trying to select just who I want. Trying the by surname group still left me with almost 4000 to select from.

 

Thanks

Albert

When you go to add the new marker set use the Select Group and Unselect Group button to get everyone you want for the marker before hitting OK. You can highlight a person to select or unselect their ancestors. I would highlight the father's line to remove all his ancestors until you get a pure maternal line. I would uncheck both options when selecting "Included non-related spouses of ancestors" and "Include siblings of ancestors".
