Saving and Printing a Portrait Pedigree

Updates_FamilyTree

As more families share photos with Family Tree, you will see more photos of your ancestors. You can now create a PDF to save or print a portrait pedigree. The pedigree displays the preferred portraits for 5 generations of ancestors. (A preferred portrait is the small photo that appears by your ancestor’s name on Family Tree. The 5 generations are the person you select and the person’s spouse, their children, and 3 generations of the person’s ancestors).
