9.2.2 ??? Initial version by Ian Fetes


  • A working TNG installation. The automated installation release was tested at TNG Version 10.0.1.
  • A backup of your current version of the php fiesl to be modified (see list on the right - click 'expand').
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager

The Male Lines and Female Lines tabs are only added to Text descendant chart

So you may want to go Administration: Setup >> Configuration >> Chart Settings >> Descendancy Chart - Initial Display: should be set to "Text Only"

TNG version: 10.0.3
TNG version: 9.2.2

The Notable Descendants option is only available from versions of the mod TO v9.2.2 and FROM 10.0.3.

To be able to see "Notable people" it is necessary to create a custom event type called IMPO.

Administration: Custom Event Types >> Add New Event Type
  1. Associated with: Individual
  2. Select Tag: EVEN - Event
  3. Type/Description: IMPO
  4. Display: needs something, but whatever you wish, e.g. 'Notable' or 'Of interest because ...' are both fine.

All other fields can hold whatever you wish. If you are not going to use the event to hold any information and enter data direct into TNG then setting

  1. Event Data: ignore

makes sense. However, you may wish to add information making it clear why the person was notable. If you import data in a GEDCOM then the IMPO events need to be imported, which will only happen if you have

  1. Event Data: accept

at the time of import. You could change to accept before import, and to ignore after, but entering the reason the person was notable may be more convenient.

Important: When adding an IMPO event to a "Notable" Individual, the IMPO event needs to have something entered into the 'Detail' field - if you're not going to display the event a single character will do.


  1. Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Extract the file from the downloaded zip file into the mods folder or FTP the extracted file to your mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.

In the event of a problem

  • Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
  • Or copy your backup of genlib.php back to your TNG install directory
