Beware, this is not exactly satisfactory. It also shows descendants wives so you do not get an accurate count of blood descendants.

If you are like me you like to keep up-to-date on things genealogical. The Legacy Tips come out periodically and you must access their website or turn on the Legacy program to see what is new.

If you install the new Google Desktop http://desktop.google.com/ you can have Legacy Tips brought to you automatically as soon as they are released by adding the Legacy address to the "Web Tips" column in Google Desktop - works great!

Will there be a quick way to count descendants without spouses. This would be helpful to eliminate divorced spouses from the count.

As M. La Nell Shores mentioned above, the tagging method does include spouses.

The quickest method that I'm aware of is to use GenViewer. On the Highlighted tab, add a highlighting condition of "descendants of." This will immediately list the descendants, along with an accurate count, which does not include spouses.
