I would like to copy my family tree to have it on a memory stick or CD but I would like to have my pictures to go with it also. What is the best way to go about this please. Happy Easter to all.

Where is it at the moment? if it's only on here, you need to download it to your home computer as a gedcom. Select 'Export GEDCOM' from the drop-down box under 'Family Tree'.

The photos won't transfer, but if you've uploaded them, you probably have copies on your PC already. Just copy or drag it onto your memory stick.

Unforunately, you will need a family history programme loaded on your computer to open the gedcom. Once loaded, you can link the photos from your memory stick to the correct person/people.

By the way, you hicuped when you posted! Fancy deleting the one with the fewest or no replies?
