This mod was developed to make it easier to manage private flags that are set manually because you were requested to respect the privacy of some persons.

The mod is designed to display the Private Flag on the Descendant Text chart to make it easier to know whether you have manually set all the Private flags for persons whose information was marked private.

TNG version: 9.0

The greenemphasis style definition was moved to the css/genstyle.css file so that it would apply to all templates, even those created by the TNG administrator.


Ken Roy developed this mod.


This mod adds the word Private to the Descendant Text only chart for persons whose Private Flag is set. It will show persons who do not have a Private flag set, but have siblings who are shown as private


  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of your TNG descendtext.php file.
  • A backup of your TNG css/genstyle.css file starting with TNG V9
