Printing off Family Tree
- I wonder if someone can help me with my problem. I have F T M
version 7 and decided to print off my family tree. I selected book
and selected which pages to print off - but unfortunately I selected
Timeline and - you guessed it - it just went on and on for hours.
Eventually I cancelled the print job so have 22 pages left not done
in the time line. Does anyone have any knowledge of Family Tree
Maker Software? I was also not sure where to start - I picked the
oldest ancestor I could find in my family line and came forward from
there. The decendent line only goes for 2 generations and I cannot
understand why? It should have gone right thru to my children and
grandchildren I thought? I am such a novice at this but want to get
the tree down on paper so I do not have to crank up the computer each
time I want to view something. Anyone that can help me I would
really appreciate some help. The book that came with the software is
so confusing - it gives too many options and I get lost before I go
anywhere. Waiting and hoping..... Elcie in NZ
I have FTM version 5, but assume it is similar to your newer version.
What you need to choose is "Genealogy report" for a complete print
out of your tree. Click "Contents" in your menu and choose the
number of generations you wish to have included. If you just want
an outline for quick reference, go to "View" on the menu &
choose "outline Descendant Chart". Again to to "Contents" and choose
the options available.
Hope this helps!
