Thank you for your prompt reply, I am exporting. I intend to send the information to my daughter in Australia so she can load it onto a Mac program she has.

It will not affect your tree on GR, the export Gedcom facility just sends you a "copy" of the Gedcom file as an attachment to your email address

Assuming you are exporting from GR and not importing to GR

If I export using Gedcom how will it damage the tree on Genes Reunited?
