FamilySearch Family Tree – Printing

You can now print both a family group sheet and a pedigree sheet from FamilySearch Family Tree. In a person view there are 2 links off to the right (see image, below). Clicking one of the printing options will open a new window in your browser that is a PDF file. For you to view that page, you will have to have the Adobe reader free plug-in. The new page is interactive and you can add notes to any of the fields (like other spelling, disputed facts, etc.). Then you can either print the file or save it to your computer.

On the the family group sheet all the sources that have been added in FSFT are also printed. Children are printed in the order that they show in Family Tree which is not always by birth date. That is a problem with Family Tree in that there isn’t any way to sort the order of children.

The pedigree chart prints 4 generations. In order to print more generations you would have to go to a person in the 4th generation and create another pedigree charts.
