Purpose of the mod

The Maternal And Paternal Lines mod adds four new pages to your TNG system: Two pages for individs and two pages for families.
The selected person/family is followed from mother to mother (Maternal Line) or from father to father (Paternal Line) as far back as is possible to trace.

  • Individ's tree is displayed including the line's spouse and siblings
  • Family's both trees are displayed side-by-side, with spouse but not siblings, making it easy to compare the time-spans for the generations.


This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe

Credit for the mod also goes to Olaf Teige, Jacques Deslauriers and Henny Savenije for German, French and Dutch translations resp. and for the suggestions, testing and patience provided by the alpha and beta testers:


TNG version: 9.1.0
  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all affected files (see the list in the summary in the upper right corner of the page)
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG v9)
  • Both English and English-UTF8 folders be on your site


  1. Download the zip file shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Extract the files and folder with all its contents from the downloaded zip file into the mods folder or FTP the extracted file and folder with its contents to your mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.

In the event of a problem

Changing the default icons/images

The default tab icons and the default images at the Family page are supposed to show a spinning wheel (Maternal) and a sword (Paternal):

Tabs icons
Family Maternal image Family Paternal image Tab icons, Family page Maternal image and Paternal image

They are selected because of the Swedish expressions for those lines (translated): Spinning side and Sword side. The correct English expressions are Distaff side and Spear side: The Flip Side Of Distaff

If you don't like the images, I provide you with a set of replacement images:

Tabs icons
Family Maternal image Family Paternal image Tab icons, Family page Maternal image and Paternal image

Open the folder named maternal_paternal_lines, in which you will find the folder replacement_images. If you do this prior to installation of the mod: Move the replacement images out of the replacement_images folder and let them replace the images in the outer folder maternal_paternal_lines. If you do this after installation of the mod: Move the replacement images to the (system root)img/ folder and let them replace the images there.

Custom Text Additions

Note: The config file includes the Dutch, English, French, German and Swedish language custom text.
For other languages you can modify the config file to add the custom text or manually add to whatever language you like.

English custom text For Reference Only!
Dutch, French, German and Swedish custom text translations may be changed by editing the respective custom_text file.

$text['xerxxSpinnrub'] = "Maternal Line";
$text['xerxxSvardrub'] = "Paternal Line";
