There have been problems with printing out the tree, so if this doesn't work, don't feel you're alone. It is impossible to print out a 'full' tree which no one with more than a few ancestors would recommend

Find the person you want as the 'root'.
Underneath the GR logo, select 'Pedigree'

You will then be shown the 'root' person to the left of the screen, then left to right their immediate ancestors - parents, grandparents, etc etc. It won't show siblings.

The Print icon is towards the top of the page underneath the words 'search tree'. It looks like a stylised typewriter.

If you don't want only the direct line, play around with the Ancestor and Descendent views

Instructions are given on the FAQ

If you find that you can't print out, GR have links to printable blank charts you could fill in by hand
