Question from Wayne:
"I am preparing some charts to take to an upcoming family reunion. There are some family members who had a first marriage that ended in divorce with no children. They had children with their second marriage. Is there a way to keep the first marriage from printing in the Legacy Charts?"
Great question Wayne! This is actually quite simple if you know about Legacy's Privacy settings. Follow these step-by-step instructions.
- In Legacy, navigate to and open the Individual's Information screen for the person you want to hide. In your case, this would be the first spouse.
- Next, in the lower right of this screen, click on the Privacy Settings button and mark this person as "Private". Click Save, then Save.
- Do steps 1 & 2 for each person you want to hide in the chart.
- Launch Legacy Charting by clicking on the Charting button in the main toolbar.
- After selecting the desired chart type, click on the Privacy Options button on the Home tab. Select the first option to "Suppress private individuals".
All "private" persons will no longer appear in the chart. If there are children from this first marriage, they will still appear.
