Purpose of the Mod

This Mod allows the administrator to designate the root of his tree (SOSA No. 1).
Then the users can trace the lineage of your SOSA 1 through all forms of TNG.
The ancestors of the SOSA 1 are then identified by a green ball and by their SOSA number.
The Mod also gives you a list of all SOSA over 31/63 generations. The next generations are also treated but receive no sosa (sosa > 2.10**9/2.10**18 !)
It is provided with a mini mod which modifiy the "Add Person Siblings Row" mod if you have installed it.

It is based on Sosa-Stradonitz's numbering, also called Eizinger's method or Ahnentafel numbering

Many thanks to

Ron, Ken, Scott for the testing, the ideas and the comments about this first version !
Bart for the code to delete the table before uninstall !
Google for some translations...

To avois conflicts :
Installing this mod require the updating of the Balanced Media mod to the version

A TNG 12.0.2 installation in working order.
This Mod works perfectly with Mods Open Street Map, Add Person Siblings Row, Show Siblings, Living Color, Research Tools and many others as I seen by Ron (80+ mods installed !)
It is possible that it works with earlier versions of TNG,
but the tests haven't been done. If someone tries, let me know the result.
Thank you.

IMPORTANT : Before installing

Before installing, it is important to make a backup copy of the following files (they will be modified by this mod):
By alphabetical order :



Unzip the received file into a "sosa" directory directly in the "mods" sub directory of your TNG installation.
You do not have to create the table manually. It is created automatically at the first execution.
On the other hand for the uninstall, it is necessary to follow the instructions in order to erase
the table sosa (tng_sosa) become useless.

Main page (getperson.php)

A green ball indicates that this person is in the lineage. His sosa number is revealed by passing the mouse over the green ball.
The spouse and descendant in the lineage are marked with a green ball as well.
A new menu appears in the menu bar. If you use already a custom menu, sosa menu is placed beyond.
It offers the following options:
For all: Go directly to sosa N° 1 [Go to Sosa 1], list of sosas [Sosas List], the same to be open in a new tab, and access to a web site about sosa numbering
For the administrator of the site: possibility of designating the current person as sosa N ° 1 [Designate as sosa 1]
If you have several trees, you can designate one sosas N¨1 per tree.

Sosa Menu
Sample list of sosa:

The list starts at sosa 1 (generation 0) until the end of your lineage
The list includes: the generation, sosa number, full name, ID of the person with him (her) possible multiple sosas
The current person and people with multiple sosa numbers are highlighted (colour choice in parameters).

The same list with some multiple sosas. All colours can be modified in mod's parameters.
Sosa List with Implex
