How much of your family tree do you want to see when you open OneGreatFamily's Genealogy Browser? Do you know how many ancestors are really in your family tree at OneGreatFamily?
Many of you may have noticed this on your Genealogy Browser toolbar but never really understood what it can show you:
Number of Generations Display on the Toolbar
You will notice this drop down menu in the toolbar section at the top of Genealogy Browser. This convenient menu lets you quickly and easily set the number of generations to be displayed in the Starfield area.
Many users have never changed this setting and so have never actually seen everything that OneGreatFamily has found for them. If you have never changed this setting, we strongly encourage you to explore this feature. You can select a value off the drop down menu or just enter a value into the box. If you are on a high-speed internet connection, we would suggest you try starting with at least 32 generations. Dial-up users might want to start with 16 generations.
Remember, the higher the number, the longer it may take to load your pedigree. Still, you could be surprised to see how much OneGreatFamily has added to your family tree, and it will be worth the wait!
Everyone can see the size and shape of their family tree on OneGreatFamily; however, only subscribers will be able to see the names of the ancestors found by OneGreatFamily's matching and merging process.
