Retrieving family tree

+1 vote
I began a decent-sized family tree in, only for the site to begin restricted access, stating that I had to pay $100 to continue.  It was upsetting after the days of work that I had put in.  I thought that there was a basic program, but then those features would no longer function either.  I would like to move the tree to WikiTree, but am unsure if it is possible.

Welcome to Wiktree. Like you, I was much more involved in the pay sites ( and myheritage), but the pay walls, among other things, left me feeling pretty disillusioned with those sites. You're going to like it here. The learning curve can be a bit daunting, but once you get the hang of things, you will appreciate it here. The community feel is great, too. Lots of people willing to lend a hand with any of your research needs.

You can export a GEDCOM file for any profile that you added or anyone in your immediate family (as long as they or the manager are not blocking you). This is referred to as the "focus person" of the export. Simply click 'Actions' on the person's profile and select 'Export GEDCOM.'

The export page will ask you to choose which group of people you wish to export.  Your choices are:

  • Blood Relatives - people related by blood, and the people married to them (includes adopted relatives);
  • DNA Relatives - people related by blood, and the people married to them (excludes adopted relatives);
  • Ancestors - parents, their parents, etc.
  • Descendants - your (or the focus person's) partners, and all resulting children, grandchildren, etc.
  • Forest -  blood relatives of you (or the focus person) and your/their current spouse, plus the blood relatives of anyone married to those blood relatives, plus anyone married to the latter set of blood relatives. Note: A Forest export may take several days to complete.
