You can upload your tree from FTM as a GEDCOM file. Put it onto a memory stick and then import it into your Dad's edition of FTM. You can also import/export GEDCOM files to/from Ancestry. I think there is a button somewhere within both programmes which talk you through the process.

I recall that I copied from Ancestry onto FTM using this method. There are good "help" sections on both of those programmes.

I have Family Tree Maker on my PC with a fairly large family tree on it.
My dad has a lot of old photos scanned on his PC that he wants to organise and he's also interested in having a play about on Ancestry, so I've bought him the Family Tree Maker software for Christmas.

Is there an easy way to copy the family tree I have on my PC onto his once he has loaded the software?
