Easy enough to do in TMG if you just want the direct ancestors. From Reports chose List of People and add a new filter for Is an Ancestor of. This will only give you DIRECT ancestors. I suspect that you might want a list of ALL relatives of each of the four principles. In that case you would need to set up a new FLAG, called for example Relative to and assign numbers 1-4 for each of the principles. IF you then setup the Add a Person screen to include this FLAG so that you can maintain consistency into the future. Now run the List of People Report with a filter of Relative to= 1 then 2 ........
Entering a hundred or so new flags will take a little time, it CAN be done automatically though this takes more juggling with variables to make it worthwhile. In fact ‘playing’ with a population of a hundred or so is a good way to make sure that your TMG setup, preferences and filters are giving you the best out of the program.
