I am assuming this is a Genes tree you want to send him.

If you export your tree as a GEDCOM then Genes send you an email with a file on it. You can forward that file to him and he can load it on to his PC.

If he doesn't have any family history software then he can start a free Genes account and import that GEDCOM file into his tree. If he already has a Genes tree the he should not import it there as it will overwrite his tree. In that case he needs to use another software package to import it or maybe create another Genes account. .

The tree he receives will not contain any photos or records.

If you are both members can you not just give access to each others trees?

Not too sure about free members, but it that works then that will be a solution.

Free members don't have access to other trees.

Get your cousin to subscribe to GR....then he can see your tree.

But this is actually the Suggestions board for members to offer Suggestions to GR......not a help line.

There is a 'help' section above the boards............check it out.
