Reports contain generally non-graphical information about a family (or an individual if the individual is not married) in a fashion which is visually pleasing and print ready.
Unlike Charts, reports are not live linked to the database, that is if you change any information in the database, such as a persons name, the family report will not be automatically updated. If you find that an open Family Report window needs updating, you can do so by choosing the Window⇒Refresh Display menu item. Alternatively, you can close and reopen the window, or If you click on any link any information will be updated in the window.

Ahnentafel Report - produces a numbered list of all ancestors of an individual
