Stagger on birth / death decade rather than by generation

0 votes


I have a grand-father who has one daughter and one son. They appear then below the father on the same line as they share same generation. Grand Father is one Line L1, Daughter and Son on Line 2.

The son has himself a son, so the grand father has a grandson. The grand son comes below his father in the chart - Line 3 - and his aunt is therefore one level higher, either right or left.

The grandson is born in 2000, and so is the daughter. They have the same age. However, as we view the data by generations, they seem to be completely separate of age.

How could we fix this ? I would like to view people's age relative of each other. The grand son and the daugher would be on the same line L3, the son would be one alone on Line 2 with the grand father on line 1.

Current view
  Leia Luke ( Leia's brother)
  Kylo Ren  
New feature
  Kylo Ren Luke (Leia's brother)

Of course, we know Leia & Luke are twins so it kind of ruins my example.. but I would assume here they are 30 years apart in birth date.


Thanks for setting this up if you guys can !

It's an interesting idea, thanks for bringing it to our attention. I'm not sure when we could set this up.
