Comment from Members • At the last meeting Janice Jackson was asked to find someone by the unusual name of Bilyard. In the afternoon she looked again & found someone had put the tree on Ancestry. • Frances Houghton had a similar issue with an Australian lady, but we don't know if she was just visiting or living here. • Attaching photos to a diagram: pros and cons of embedding versus linking. If linking, how best to keep photos and GED file together? • Sending diagram to be printed: Where, how and in what format (what does it cost)? • Splitting a branch from the Family Tree (if time permits)

Answering the Questions- Splitting off a Branch from the Family Tree • Splitting off a Branch from the Tree is relatively easy. It enables one to send data on one area of the family without having to send the whole tree. • Care must be taken when splitting a branch from the tree. If you inadvertently save the branch with the original family name, you will lose the tree data.
