Browsing Through Your Family Tree
Your family tree can contain as many people as you want but will show a maximum of 5 generations at the same time on the screen. Specifically, you will see: 1 subject, 3 generations of ancestors and 1 generation of lineage. The main subject of the tree (you) is always in a green box. Ancestors are on the right hand side, and the lineage is below each of your unions.
You can move through your tree by changing the tree's subject. Click on the 'house' on a person in your tree to make them the subject of your tree. You can also move to the right of your tree by clicking on the 'arrow' to see the next generation of an ancestor. At anytime, click on to reset the position of your tree with its main subject (you).
