Sorry, Barbara Kim Thigpen, still don't get it.  I am adding in the discussions forum an ahnentafel for Eleanor.  Hopefully you can tell me where/if we differ, thanks.

I have deleted the 1st post. The 2cd is an incomplete list of ancestors of Aquitaine. There are repeats of persons because they are found on different family lines. I have Aquitaine ancestry on maternal & paternal lines; including Eleanor, on both. The 3rd post is a relationship chart from my Tribal Tree on Tribal Pages. I entered William I & then my name. It pulls up everyone in that line, from parent to child; only it doesn't show both parents. I count the number of 'grand's to get the number of generations to William I on any particular line. I only have the persons in that line up to Eleanor, & then added the number from her to him, since I already knew his line.
