I am a new subscriber to ancestry.com and just started my tree. Is there a way to rename the tree once created? I cannot find any info in the help section

hi..go to the tab Family Trees click down and wait a few seconds or go to more...click on manage tree under the tree you want and the first thing you see is the box with the name in it...make the changes there...

Thanks for responding. I cannot find "Manage Tree" any where
I get my tree name, create a new tree, and a down load option in the drop down panel

From anywhere in your tree, click on "View Family Tree" which is just to the right of the name of your tree.

Now you'll see the name of the last person you viewed in your tree, then "Tree Overview", "Media Gallery" and "Tree Settings". Click on "Tree Settings".

Now you'll see the name of your tree in a box under "Tree Info" & "Tree Name". Delete the old name and type the new name you want into the box.
