How to Submit
Your Family Tree
1. See the Researchers
page for an example of how to submit a list of your direct lineage.
Type the list into the text of your e-mail message. Include your e-mail
address and any other information you would like posted, like
your mailing address, phone number, etc.
2. Privitize your family tree and export
the Zellner lineage from your tree if you have other lineages
in your file:
a. Family Tree Maker: create a report,
using the Custom Report format. Click on the "Individuals
to Include" button, or go to the Contents menu, and then
"Individuals to Include". Choose "Select Individuals"
and then click on Individuals to Include. Highlight your oldest
Zellner ancestor then click the "Descendants >"
button. Click okay to view the report. Next, go to the File menu,
Preferences, and Privitize. Click the Privitize Information button
to remove information about living people. In FTM 2005 click File then
Privitize. Now go to the File
menu and "Copy/Export Individuals in Report". Name
your report by your initials or your ancestors name (e.g., mhm.ged), and save it as
a GEDCOM (*.GED) file.
b. I am not familiar with other genealogy
programs. If you are familiar with other programs and want to submit directions as in part
a. above, please send them to me and I will post them here.
c. Privitizing your file: If your genealogy
program does not have a Privitize option, you can download one of these
programs to privitize the new Zellner GEDCOM file you have created:
Others listed on
3. Send your GEDCOM file as an attachment
to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Send information
on all sources used in your research.
