I would like to generate a tree containing my complete family. Right now, I can only see (for example) myself, my parents, grand parents, etc., but not my aunt, uncle, niece, ... How can I display a tree containing 'everybody'?

wikitree does not operate as fast as fb or a game, you must save after each sequence :) you must also prompt the WT server & be patient while creating profiles :)
Bram, did you get the information you needed ?

 Hope we did not muddy the waters LOL ;)
Wellllll... ;-) Michael gave me the answer I needed, so cheers to Michael. Thanks again! :-)

Bram,

I believe you want to see a top down type tree that shows aunts and uncles and siblings, is that correct?

The closest we have on WikiTree is the Descendant's List found under the Family Tree and Tools tab.

Otherwise you are looking at export a GEDCOM of your Watchlist and using a genealogy software program or uploading to a site with such a feature.

I've been playing with MacFamilyTree and this one does exactly the trick. I can even show a tree with all my nephews on it. :) I will be editing there and upload it back to Wikitree.

 as a newer member you cant, you can only start with small GEDCOM up loads. Witch IMHO is a waste of time :)http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Jillaine's_Dream_Source_Help_Page   http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help_Index

Hi John and thanks for your help. :) I think you misunderstood my question. It's actually the technical part I'm figuring out: I've entered my family tree (well, the basics already), but for example my aunt isn't showing up on the tree when I select myself as a starting point.
Bram, are you Refreshing your browser =F 5 between Edits & adding ?

Hi Bram,

I think the simple answer is you can't. (But I am relatively new to Wikitree, so someone else might know better.) What I normally do to get a better picture is to choose an ancestor and look at their descendants. Of course this will only give you half of the generation before yours, a quarter of the previous generation etc., but I have found it useful for checking if I've missed people out.

Hi Bram,

WikiTree is a single family tree. Seeing everybody would mean seeing everybody on WikiTree. (Or at least the 8.5 million who are connected to each other.) :-)

The Family List would enable you to see aunts and uncles on the same page, but it's not a tree structure.
