Diagram Root

All Diagrams have a root. This is the person from which the diagram "spreads out" so in the following Ancestor Diagram the root is Ian Robert Peabody as it his ancestors who are shown. In addition in the standard diagram preferences the root box is shown in a different colour from other boxes.

All diagrams also have the ability to be centred on a couple rather than a single person, this is done by selecting two people who must be the spouses of a family as spouse family record as explained by how to View Both Spouses’ Ancestors.
