G-List will build a complete Generation List for anyone in your database. You must first configure the Root Person ID to match the GEDCOM id of someone in your database.

G-List is as a free web service. G-List builds a Generation List using AGNUS, a new genealogy numbering system. AGNUS allows for bidirectional traversals of your Generation List making a more useful alternative to the commonly used Ahnen numbering system. You can read more about the advantages of AGNUS in the article Yet Another Genealogy Numbering System. G-List also differs from traditional lists in several other areas. Immigrants are italicized and those without parents are displayed in bold so that they are easily located, allowing you to quickly identify those individuals needing further research. G-List also displays the migration path for each person making it easy to spot patterns and to notice discrepancies if they exist. If you would prefer to build a traditional Ancestors List using the Ahnen numbering system, we have that too ... please visit A-List.

Configuration Options

Set the ID to the person in your database you wish to be placed at the root of your G-List.

If you are not sure what the ID of your Root Person is, you can view your GEDCOM file with any text viewer and search it for the name. GEDCOM files delimit surnames with slashes so if you were looking for "John Smith", you would need to search for "John /Smith/". Once you locate their name, ie "1 NAME John /Smith/", look for their level 0 record in the lines preceding it. It should look something like this: "0 INDI @XXXX@", where XXXX is their ID and should look something like like "I1" or "P-1000234".
