    Hi all,
    I hope you can see what I am trying to think of in this!
    I have a desktop computer, with Windows XP Home, and have the Brothers
    Keeper 6 Family Tree programme installed, and considerable info added with
    pictures of most people.

    I would like to be able to show the tree to family members, none of whom
    have computers, or can come to me, so I need to take it to them.

    I thought about buying a laptop, but thought I would ask if anyone can thing
    of a cheaper way than the high cost of them.

    Is there any other device or way of being able to do this?

    Thanks for any suggestions,

    You could print it and put it in book form.

    Burn all the info onto a DVD? (I'm assuming the family members have DVD
    players, right? Or even if you had to buy a cheap DVD player to bring
    to the family reunions or whatever, it would still be immensely cheaper
    than buying a laptop.)

    Thanks Nancy, is there a programme that could be put onto DVD that would
    allow me to go through the hundreds of pages?
    Printing it is just not practical, too many A4 sheets (60+) to put together.

    There are services that will print your family tree (and photos) on 3
    foot wide paper of whatever length is needed. Think of it as wallpaper ;-)

    Top post corrected.
    60+ sheets of A4 paper seems reasonable. A ream of 500 sheets cost me approx
    $5.00 earlier this year. 1 black & 1 colour ink cartridges for my EsonStylus
    cost me approx $60. Print it off once then photocopy it for everyone else.
    But you should be able to buy the cheap DVD player mention by Nancy for
    about the same price.

    Nero Vision Express, or Nero OEM supplied with some DVD burners has a
    feature to make video slide show DVD. I have seen Nero OEM sold separately
    by at least one used (surplus) computer dealer.
