Hi i'm in need of advice; how can I print the whole of my family tree? i've tried but it only prints one page hence most of the tree is missing, i've played around with different options but had no luck so far :-S also if i've saved documents to my 'keepsafe' will they stay there forever or will they be deleted once my subscription has ended?
Thanks
Donna

There have been ongoing problems with the tree printing facility on here for over 1 year now.

Your tree and 'keepsafe' remains even if you give up your subs. You will become a FREE member, which means you will still be able to access & amend your tree. The tree is part of the site which has always been available to free members.

You will be able to read threads, but I think not reply.

Hope someone with more knowledge also replies. :-D

Hi Madeline,

each tree view that we offer is printable. So you can print the Pedigree view, the Ancestors view and so on. In the top right hand corner of the tree you'll see an image of a printer. If you hover your mouse over it you'll see it says 'Print your tree'. Please click on this to print it out.

If you do need any help please contact support@genesreunited.co.uk. Our customer support team will be more than happy to help you.

Kind regards,

Estelle

So by ommission, the implication is that you can't print off a full tree. Many would advise not to as you would need reams of paper and an aircraft hanger to lay it out....unless you have a really small tree. Even trees with 240 people ( the size the system is supposed to support) will take many sheets of paper as the printer 'Squares things off' ie with blank pages
