Got 4600+ entries on my tree - need to print out sections of it - how can i do this please

I use GRAMPS free download. Export yr GR tree into a GED file then import the file into GRAMPS which has lots of print options. There is no way of any serious printing from GR itself.

If Rollo's suggestion doesn't work out for you, you could ask for a quote from

They will need a copy of your gedcom. To download it from GR, hover your mouse over the heading Family Tree and select Export GEDCOM.

Although it should arrive within a few minutes, the download sometimes gets 'hung up'. If that happens, email Support to sort it out.

I have used genealogyprinters and highly recommend them. I just gave them my password for my tree on Ancestry and they did the rest.
