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

Replacing the default icons/images
The default tab icons and the default images at the Family pages are supposed to show a spinning wheel (Maternal) and a sword (Paternal):Tab icons, Family page Maternal image and Paternal image
They are selected because of the Swedish expressions for those lines (translated) that are Spinning side and Sword side. The English expressions are Distaff side and Spear side - Read more here: The Flip Side Of Distaff
If you don't like the images, I provide a set of replacement images: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.
