The "Ahnentafel List" is one of the basic, standard lists that genealogists know and use to keep their ancestors in good order. I carry mine in my notebook that I take to the repositories to do research - with it, and other lists or reports, I can quickly figure out if the information in a source is about my ancestor or not.
All versions of Family Tree Maker, including FTM 2010, can create an "Ahnentafel Report," and the later versions can create a "Simple Ahnentafel Report." The screen below shows the "Genealogy Report" selections available in FTM 2010:
I created an "Ahnentafel Report" for myself in the screen below:
In the screen above, I selected only the name, birth, death and marriage dates and places. I was unable to deselect the children. In order for me to use this report as an Ahnentafel List, it requires me to edit the report and delete all of the children data plus some text in the Father and Mother sections.
Again, the children are shown, plus the "More About Facts." This report does not satisfy my need for a simple "Ahnentafel List."
Maybe that will get some attention from the FTM software developers. I mentioned it to them verbally when I visited Ancestry.com last January, and again at the SCGS Jamboree in June and FGS Conference in September.
