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.
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
- 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|
Ancestors_map_v8.1.3.cfg.zip file linked above
|TNG version:||≥ 9.0|
- a working TNG installation of TNG8 or TNG9.
- Geo-coded locations
|V18.104.22.168||23 April 2012|| Minor bug fix.|
Another attempt at fixing issue where sometimes "%A0" would display in a place name.
|V22.214.171.124||23 April 2012|| Minor bug fix.|
Corrected an issue where the map would not show if you had set your site to NOT assign a tree to places.
|V126.96.36.199||21 April 2012|| Minor Update.|
Added PDF link to be able to create a PDF Pedigree chart from this page - NOTE: It's not a PDF of the map page, but just the regular PDF as created from other pages.
|V188.8.131.52||13 April 2012|| Minor bug fix.|
Corrected issue where people with certain prefixes in their names like "von" or "de" were being displayed with "%A0" in the name in the balloon on the map and in the table to the right of the map, instead of a space after the prefix. Also corrected an issue that stopped the map displaying if there was an apostrophe in a person's name.
|V184.108.40.206||21 March 2012|| Minor bug fix.|
Corrected issue where Map would not show if the TNG Admin setting for Miscellaneous ------> "Individuals start with:" was set to "Personal information only" preventing the map from showing at all.
|V220.127.116.11||8 March 2012|| Minor bug fix.|
Language Mods added for Dutch, French and Spanish. They work for all versions though!
|V18.104.22.168||2 February 2012||Updated by Roger Moffat for TNG 9.0.0. This update suppresses ancestors that are marked Living and / or Private if the user is not allowed to view Living and / or Private for that Branch of the Tree|

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!
If you want to add another language please send me the translation (either the texts or as a full language mod) and your name (so I can give you credit) by sending me a personal message from the TNG forum.
- 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
