Purpose of the mod

TNG version: 8.1.3
TNG version: 8.0

This mod adds

  • a ^ (caret) sign for parents and spouses who have ancestors, and
  • the > (greater than) sign for children who are married but have no descendants.

This mod originally conflicted with the Child Descendant Indicator Mod which changes the > (greater than) sign indicator to a + (plus) sign, as a more intuitive indicator that the child has descendants.

The conflicting code was removed from this mod, but you now must install the Child Descendant Indicator Mod in order to get the + (plus sign) for children with descendants.

TNG version: 9.0

For TNG V9 the mod was updated to
