Does export file mean that you are deleting your tree from the site? If so, how do you share your tree with a non-GR user? I don't want to delete it, just share. The person I'm sharing it with uses Ancestry. Can someone help me there?

don't ask on here ......

.... this Board was meant for suggestions to improve the site. But the staff no longer even look on this Board, and neither do most of the members

I suggest that you delete this post, and the re-post on the Genealogy Chat Board where there are a number of members who will know the answer.

If all else fails, email GR at the following address, and you shoudl get an answer in3 working days

But start by asking on the Genealogy Chat Board, and delete this post.

The tree remains, it is not deleted by an export but it is overwritten by an import.

Sylvia is right, few people look at this board.
