I am trying to send a cousin his portion of our family tree. How do I create a Gedcom with him as the primary person, and only his ancestors included? Is this even possible?

Thanks

Use File > Export. From there, for "People to export", choose "Select from list". Click on the box to the left of your cousin's name to check the box, then on the "Mark group" button, then on "Ancestors of highlighted person". You have several options on that following screen as to whom to include. Note that the number of generations can be selected, as well.

You might want to use File > Import on that GEDCOM file to inspect it afterwards just to make sure that it includes the niformation that you intended. You'll want to import it into a new file so that it can be deleted once you're done with it.

You can also create a Group using the same criteria and check the Group to make sure you are including everyone desired in the gedcom before creating the gedcom.

Use the Group as the people to be marked for the gedcom on the Gedcom, Select from a list screen.
