Purpose of the Mod
This mod was developed from a discussion on Adding a map to Ancestry for an individual, Putting all ancestors for an individual on a google map in this
TNG Community Forum entry It will add a new link to the Ancestors tab on a getperson.php page that shows a map with all of the places (that have been geocoded) for that person's ancestors.
If you have installed one of the Google Map mods that adds Placelevels, you should download and install one of the supplemental mods shown here.
|DO NOT install the supplemental mods unless you are also running the mod that is a prerequisite|

TNG8 version by Bryan S. Larson
Config file for TNG V8.1.2 updated by Roger Moffat to work correctly, and have the variables quoted.
Mod was updated for TNG V9 by Roger Moffat to follow the Living and Private access rules as well as quoted variables from the TNG 8 Revision and tweaks for validation.
Mod was updated for TNG V10 by Roger Moffat to handle changes in innermenu caused by the addition of the Vertical Ancestor Chart to TNG. Version 10.0.0.1 includes fixes to the Privacy logic provided by Martin Pannier.
Mod was updated for TNG V10.1 by Roger Moffat to handle change from mysql_ queries to tng_ queries in TNG 10.1.
V184.108.40.206 was updated by Michel Kirsch to allow selection of events and to add an Edit option to display Generation numbers relative to 0 or to 1.
For the maps to work you must have geo-coded locations in your tree!
|TNG version:||≤ 8.1.0|
- mappedigree.php is still coded in TNG V7 style without the quoted variables used in TNG V8 (fixed in v220.127.116.11 and later)
- pins in Event table are not numbered
- pins in Event table are shown with a border (See sites using the mod for visualization of these last 2 issues)
- currently does not support the Google_Maps_-_More_Place_Levels_Mod
- The ancestors_map_placelevel_v8.1.0.zip file can be installed on top of the Ancestor Map mod to address the previous 3 issues shown above. Note that if you don't have the Google_Maps_-_More_Place_Levels_Mod installed, you should rework the ancestors_map_placelevel config file and only use location 2 to fix the other two issues.
|TNG version:||≥ 8.1.2|
The above issues have been fixed in the Ancestors_map_v8.1.3.cfg.zip file linked above
|TNG version:||≥ 9.0|
The above issues have been fixed in TNG V9.
- a working TNG installation with Mod Manager
- Geo-coded locations
- Latitude and longitude values must use decimals

Automated Installation Requirements
- Remove previously installed version
- Download the appropriate zip file from the Mod Summary in the upper right hand corner
- Unzip the downloaded zip file to your mods folder in TNG V8 and above
- Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the ancestors_map_.cfg
- Delete previous version
If you have other Goggle Map mods installed, you may need to install additional fixes to the Ancestor Map mod
Custom Text Additions
Note that config file only includes the English language changes, so if you support multiple languages you will need add these lines to each of your language cust_text.php files with appropriate translations of course.
// added for use with mappedigree file $text['ancestorsmap'] = "Map";
For example, you would add to the French/cust_text.php
// added for use with mappedigree file $text['ancestorsmap'] = "Carte";
Or you can use the language mods in the summary in the upper right corner of this page to add Dutch, French or Spanish custom text additions. Procedure: download, unzip to TNG mods folder, install using Mod Manager. Note that these language mods work for all versions!
- As with most source code modifications, these changes will likely be overwritten during your next TNG revision upgrade and will need to be re-implemented. (Using the Mod Manager greatly simplifies this process.
In the event of a problem
- Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
- all should be well now
