I've tried to save it (the weird coded document that pops up after I push download to my PC) but it saves as either a .gedtxt, a .gedmht or .gedhtm dcoument (those are the only three options it gives me in the "save as type" browser and it won't let me delete and type my own). Then when I try to import it my Family Tree Maker software, I get a message that says ".htm (or .txt or .mht) not supported for import at this time." I think the problem is occuring before that when I try ti download the tree from to my pc because I don't get any dialogue box asking me to save it as a particular document like the instructions indicate
