The Chapter Person item adds a person entry to a chapter for a single person selected by an ID number. For other ways to add people to a chapter, see the Chapter People help page.

Here's an example of a Content Chapter that includes a Text User Item and three Chapter Person items.

Specify the ID number of the subject whose person entry will be added to the current chapter in the ID textbox.


You may use the Picklist button to select the subject.


The Title property identifies the User Item in the User Items list. The title does not appear in the chapter.

Page Break Before

If Page Break Before is checked, Gedcom Publisher will add page-break-before: always to the CSS styles for this person, and many e-book readers will begin the content on a new page. Unfortunately, some e-book readers do not honor the page-break-before property.
