How To Export Your Family Tree From Ancestry.com

Many people have asked me "how do I export my  family tree from Ancestry.com so I can import it to my genealogy software?" Well, this is surprisingly easy to do with these six steps of instructions and images to follow. Here's how...

Step 1:  Sign in to your ancestry.com account:




Step 2: Click on "Family Trees"




Step 3: Click on the family tree you want to export:





Step 4:
Click on "Tree pages"





Step 5:
Click on "Tree Settings"






Step 6: Click on "Export tree". Save your family tree file to your computer. Don't worry, your family tree will still be in ancestry.com, this will only make a COPY of your family tree when it's exported.



That's it!! Once your family tree has exported, it will be a GEDCOM file, which means you can import it to any genealogy software of your choice. Have fun!!

GEDCOM stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication.
