  4. Can I save my Ancestry Tree

I am not very techi so may have not understood anything too difficult. To input individually into another tree setup would be tedious. I would love...

  10. Colour of Ancestry

    Since Ancestry's new look was introduced, I've given them the benefit of the doubt and worked round getting used to it. (I ignore their 'Lifestory' function for example, and make allowances for their fuzzy search engine results - like WW1 results for someone who I've got dying in 1895 say) ...
