how to start a tree not with one's self being the "founder"

Hi

I want to make a historical chart, starting with an ancestor but I don't want the tree to be "founded by" my ancestor. Is there an easy way to change of "founder" field?

Related: When importing from GEDCOM, it asks which of the people I am so it can enter that into the founder field - but of course I am not on the chart. This is not a problem if the "founder" field can be changed later.

Thanks,

There is no way to have different people designated as "me" and "the founder". They are the same entry in the system.
