Wouldn't you need to have a FH programme on your computer to even consider printing off on to one page?

Unless you have access to a printer which takes A3 paper, the details for 5 generations onto A4 are going to be so small as to be useless.

Although I've forgotten how to do it, it is possible to draw lines and boxes onto a (possibly) word doc. May be you can experiment with that to see how 5 generations would look on A4?

Ron's site is great if you want something special as a gift or for a family reunion, otherwise any of the commercial tree programs should do what you want.

Thanks, will check that out. My tree isn't very big, about five generations.

It depends on how big your tree is. It would have to be quite small to be able to print it on a home printer.

This company is very good and Ron, the owner of the company used to be a member of Genes:-

Ron will talk you through everything you need to do for him to print your tree and it can be as big as you want with as many people in it as you want.
