| The latest version of this mod conflicts with the Census Plus International mod such that the Census Plus International mod now gets several PHP errors if you install the latest version of the Sosa mod. This was not the case on earlier versions of the Sosa mod which had been tested with the Census Plus International mod. KenRoy (talk) 17:10, 17 July 2019 (CDT)--

|Latest Mod||184.108.40.206 Rev 3 - ATTENTION! Delete sosa table at uninstall of earlier version for TNG v12|
|Min TNG V||n.c|
|Max TNG V||12+|
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

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.
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 :
admin_backup.php admin_families.php admin_optimize.php admin_people.php admin_restore.php admin_utilities.php ahnentafel.php customconfig.php descend.php descendtext.php desctracker.php extrastree.php familychart.php familygroup.php genlib.php getperson.php languages/Dutch/cust_text.php languages/Dutch-UTF8/cust_text.php languages/English/cust_text.php languages/English-UTF8/cust_text.php languages/French/cust_text.php languages/French-UTF8/cust_text.php languages/German/cust_text.php languages/German-UTF8/cust_text.php languages/Spanish/cust_text.php languages/Spanish-UTF8/cust_text.php pedigreetext.php register.php search.php verticalchart.php
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.
When upgrading to a higher version.
- Uninstall and "delete" the current Mod. It is not necessary to delete your table sosa_tng, EXCEPT if it is expressly explained in the release notes!
- Proceed as for an installation with the new Mod
There is currently a known Sosa v220.127.116.11 rev3 compatibility issue with the Census Plus International mod version v18.104.22.168. Census Plus International v22.214.171.124a that fixes the issues caused by the Sosa v126.96.36.199 rev3 mod is now in beta test.
In the event of a problem
- Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
- Open an issue in the TNG Community Forums
- Copy the backup of the affected files back to your TNG directory

Here are some snapshots of the modified screens (there are 16 screens modified by Sosa) :
|EN - Explanations||Image|
|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.
|Sample list of sosa:
The list starts at sosa 1 (generation 0) until the 31st generation.(Next generations are not numbered)
|The same list with some multiple sosas.|
|All the reports of descent are provided with their sosa marker (the green bullet)next to people of the lineage, possibly with their multiple sosa
Here's an example with implex (multiple sosas) to A-A-grandparents.
|Here's the descend tree in text mode (descend.php)|
|The sosa marker is also present in the search results...|
|... and in every others graphical representations of your tree (here in desctracker.php)|
