Reindexing a Family Tree

Post by ChrisALee » Wed Feb 20, 2019 4:37 am

I've imported a GEDCOM into iFamily containing a close DNA match I cannot find a link to. The GEDCOM was provided by that person.
My problem is that indexing starts with one of his ancestors and I would like the index to start with him.
Can I re-index the tree in iFamily and choose which person is index number 1?
Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris

I don’t believe it is possible to change the index numbers in iFamily.

This posting provides some more info on the numbering

Hope that helps

Hi Nigel
Thanks for that link.
One of the things in iFamily which I use frequently is hovering over a person to see their relationship to me.
I have several "secondary" trees which are important based on DNA matches I am slowly piecing together and using the same hover technique is a quick way of testing possible relationship scenarios.
I'll investigate exporting a GEDCOM and then using a GEDCOM editor to re-index. If I find a solution I'll post it here (but I recommend people don't hold their breath!).
Regards
Chris
