I happen to splice into some genealogical lines that go back to Charlemagne and even Adam and Eve. Some may argue the validity of these genealogies but they are nevertheless fun. I can not print Ahnentafel reports going back further than 32 generations. I suspect that this is due to the software using 32 bit integers. I would like to be able to print more than 32 generations. There are probably a thousand different ways for a programmer to overcome this problem. For instance, maybe the generations could go like 1, 2, ... , 32, A1, A2, ... , A32, B1, ... , B32, C1, ..., &c.

Thanks,

Kevin

You can do more generations than the counter will roll to by typing in a higher number.

The numbers on anyone above the 31st generation are all messed up though.

You're right! What I was doing was clicking
the up arrow to the right of the number and
it wouldn't go above 32. So I then thought it
wouldn't go higher.

Thanks
