My advice is to put everything into one big tree as it is always easier to split off a branch for printing or whatever than it is to combine trees and have to deal with duplicate people, images, sources, etc.

That way you can also make sure you are entering a person only once and not wind up with a bunch of duplicates in your tree.

I began by entering both my father’s family and my mother’s family. This becomes very involved. Also, if I wanted to print only my father’s family, how could I do that? Is it best to enter each family in a separate tree? If so, how can I move one family to its own tree? How have others treated this subject?

But my quwstion is a little different-I have been involved with this ancestry search for several years, there fore have made many mistakes. How do I combine two or three trees (all the same family? And how do I delete one? Any help is appreciated. Thank you?

Now, I need to know how to delete an individual in Ancestry.com.
I am not a computer whiz.
Thank you.

I was just wondering how to do this the other day. I also laughed because your ancestor you used in your example has the same name as one of my husband’s. LOL. Thanks for the post.

Hopefully, anyone reading this blog will finally get it that FAMILY TREE MAKER is the topic, and won’t continue to confuse it with ancestry.com.

(Unless you have a better way to do this…)
