  1. Hello – I have created a Pedigree Chart, choosing four generations. For two of the great-grandparents, the chart does not include all the information re birth, marriage and death, but it does for the other six by including a second line of information in the box. I would like to know how to increase the information in the two boxes.
    Thank you,
