Hey, all. I've been off of Wikia for a long time now, and I'm coming back to work on a project - I want to build a wiki that traces genealogies, but my template-making skills are a bit rusty.

Here's what I need: I need a template in which I can list the parents of the person, and the template will automatically create an on-page list of the person's grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, and so forth. So, if I create pages for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, and I list Jacob as Joseph's father, Isaac as Jacob's father and Abraham as Isaac's father, when I go to Joseph's page, there'll be an in-template list of Joseph's genealogy: his father Jacob, grandfather Isaac and great-grandfather Abraham.

I hope I'm being clear about this - if my writing is confusing, let me know and I'll clarify myself. My wiki is: gen.wikia.com

Thanks!
