To Robert, I've just read this answer to someone's question. I am a full member of Ancestry but have no offline tree. I've now downloaded my tree (a Gedcom) from ancestry but have no software to open the Gedcom. Where is the AFT directory you mentioned in your last post? - I didn't know there was a software to use without having to buy it. I want to share my tree from my computer with family. I'd like to make a cd copy to send to them. My Vista is saying windows cannot open the file because it doesn't recognize the file. I'm dumb on computers.
