There was nothing that needed to be conveyed to me, and I'm not sure what led you to believe that I don't understand what this new numbering system does vs. Ahnentafel and its derivatives. Of course I understand that it's different. That's a prerequisite to participating in the discussion I'm inviting everyone to join. Let's talk about this new system vs. Ahnentafel and see if we can't drive toward a consensus.

I wasn't suggesting that you had not put effort into this. I'm sorry if that came off as critical. I only offered some unsolicited advice that your idea might gain more momentum if it were more easily consumed by the community. A sample PDF, I should think, would make the value of your suggested enhancement more evident to other users in the community, who in turn might join the chorus requesting it.

I hope you'll stick around to share your opinion about how Ancestral Lines stacks up against the alternatives. I only meant to draw down the tangent of your enhancement so we could get back to the proposed subject matter: Ancestral Lines Pairing System.

I still don't know if you would use this Ancestral Lines system on an Ahnentafel report by FTM. ;)
