I can't find anywhere to let me print out my whole family tree.
I have done it once before....long time ago!!
The reason is I am going to use another site like Ancestry or Find my past as I am fed up with not being able to use this site properly!!
Any help on how to print it out or other suggestions.....not too complicated....would be much appreciated!!

If you just want to put the details from your tree on here onto another site then you can just export the tree as a gedcom without printing it out.

Hover your mouse over "Family Tree" in the bar at the top of the page and click on "Export Gedcom" and follow the instructions. The only thing is it will not transfer any photos or images you have attached to your tree.

Again I think people are being picky here. I see nothing wrong with asking this question on different boards. It's a way of getting various opinions. It's not the same as asking for a look-up for the same family on different boards where information could be duplicated.

Picky or not, anyone who has spent time and effort to answer a question on any subject knows what it feels like only to find out the topic has been covered on a duplicated posting. I for one have fallen for this on many occasions and every time felt understandably annoyed.

What it also leads to is members becoming increasingly reluctant to answer queries in case they end up wasting their time, or even worse, to be told "I already know that from the last time I asked...."
