Is there a way to print family group sheets and pedigree charts with large print for the visually impaired? My mother has worked on genealogy for years, but her eyesight isn't what it used to be. She would LOVE to have our genealogy printed out in a size that she can read without a magnifying glass.

Have you looked at the "Fonts" button on the Family Group Sheet selection screen?

A  pedigree chart or FGS has a lot of information crammed into a small space. The thing I'd suggest is to print on a large-size (e.g. Ledger) printer and use the "Fit to page" printing option. You might also try a bold font. If your printer can't handle the large paper, there's Kinko's or Office Depot.

Office supply stores run sales on large format ink jet printers 11X17 with scanners to match.  But you need lots of room for such a printer. 


Save an old printer for trade credit sometimes up to $50.00.
