Purpose of the mod

The Parental LINES is an extract of Erik Hoppe's Maternal And Paternal Lines mod that shows only the direct paternal line (father-to-father or Y-DNA line) and direct maternal line (mother-to-mother or mtDNA line) as far back as is possible to trace.


This mod was developed by Jeff Robison

Credit for the mod also goes to Erik Hoppe for the Maternal And Paternal Lines mod from which this mod was created. This mod was previously unpublished but had been shared with Ken Roy who had modified it to install if Erik's mod was installed.

v11.0.0.4 of the mod was reworked so it should install whether Erik's mod is installed or not and published by Ken Roy with Jeff's permission.

Czech, German, and Spanish translations were provided by Ron krzmarzick
