I'm not very technical so forgive me if I explain this incorrectly! I'm trying to save the family tree I have on Ancestry to a Gedcom file so that I can send it to a company who can print all the ancestors out onto one large page as my family tree (complete with photos).

However, I believe you have to EXPORT the file and I can only see IMPORT gedcom.

How do you export your tree to send it on?

Just beware that if the "photos" you refer to are in your tree, media objects attached to individuals or events, the tree export will not contain the media.

Yep! Found that out!! I'll be contacting a company that does posters of your family tree next week and I'll ask them what their process is with regards to photos. It may be that I just forward the Gedcom file and then a folder of the photos I have. Thanks for replying though.
