Thread: Greek Mythology

    Greek Mythology

    I am using FTM14 on a Win 10 laptop.

    I am interested in creating a tree of the Olympians according to Bullfinch. The only problem I foresee is the fact that there are many brother-sister, niece-uncle, etc. unions with issue. Is there a way of making the program show these in a printed report? Thanks in advance.

    I have no idea, but why not just input say a small amount of people and then try printing a report?

    I'm sure that it would show a relationship report [if that option were selected] There are some members on here that are cousins that have married and had children.

    please let us know when you have a result.

    Pluto union with Demeter; issue a daughter, Persephone. (accord. to Bullfinch)
    Pluto (later) union with Persephone with issue, the Eumenides. (accord. to Hesiod)
    Zeus (disguised as Pluto) union with Persephone has the Eumenides as issue (accord. to Apollodorus [questionable])
    The program will not create the Pluto/Persephone union (with an alert that these persons cannot be united).
    Can I make the program unite them whether it likes it or not?
    Thank you.

    You can download a Gedcom for Greek Mythic Genealogy here

    https://patrickbrianmooney.nfshost.c...genealogy.html

    I opened it in Family Historian and it was fine and looks pretty complex to me and no complaints from FH other than a couple of formatting errors in the Gedcom File.

    I don't know is the honest answer, why not play around with it and see? can you not create on say on Ancestry and then import it to FTM? [or sync if you have that option?]

    Thank you one and all for your input. Please forget the whole thing, I have given up.
    Here is the latest:
    Zeus + wife 1 and children = OK
    Zeus + wife 2 and children = OK
    Zeus + wife 3 and suddenly ALL the offspring of all the wives have become offspring of wife 3. I give up!
    I shall resort to Hesiod and Apollonius and rely on my memory which, at age 75, is nothing to write home about.
    END OF PROJECT.
    Amicis amicaeque, iterum, ago gratias.
