Family Tree Enhancements

by Julie Hill

Posted on April 22, 2010

We upgraded the Archives family tree tools last week based on feedback we received from users. Though lots of behind-the-scenes work was involved, the most important updates include:

  • Print - users can print the current view of their tree, or a tree member profile.
  • Expanded Tree View - users can now view up to 5 generations of their family tree at once.
  • GEDCOM import size - we expanded the maximum accepted GEDCOM upload file size to 10mb. We're already working to accept up to 20mb files (look for this enhancement soon).


These enhancements should make the family tree more flexible and customizable for users. Look for additional updates in the next couple of weeks. If you have a question or comment about the Archives family tree tools, email it to us at familytree AT
