Family Tree Creator: How To Use The Family Tree Prints Web App

Family Tree Creator: How To Use The Family Tree Prints Web App

Want to make a custom family tree using our online family tree creator? We've got you covered with this tutorial on how to use our family tree maker app to create your very own family tree print.

Feel free to either watch the video version or read on! 


1.Start from and choose a family tree template to start from. Once you've found a template that you like, choose the number of generations you'd like displayed in your family tree print and click "Start from this template." This will drop you into our family tree creator app.

2. Now it's time to enter your names into your blank family tree template. You can either do that manually or use our FamilySearch import or GEDCOM import functionality. If you're using the FamilySearch import, after you've authenticated with FamilySearch and been brought back to our family tree creator, you'll select who you want to be at the center of your chart. You'll have the choice of yourself, your spouse (if you've connected with them in FamilySearch) and "Child of [yourself]". If you want both your and your spouse's family history to be in the same chart you'll do "Child of [yourself],"  even if you don't actually have any children.

3. Next check to make sure all your ancestors' names are visible and aren't being cut off, and then customize the family tree template however you'd like to. Read this article about the most common tweaks you'll want to make in our family tree creator.
