How do I create a Gedcom for just my mother's side of my tree?

If I want to leave out my father & all his family completely. Is this possible? If so, how? I already tried…I used root person as my mother & then upload the Gedcom to but if you search the new Ancestry tree, all my father’s family is in there.


Have you tried putting the root person as your mother’s mother? I suspect your father’s family turns up because he would be included as the husband of the root person, your mother? Good luck.

Yes I did put my mother as root person & you’re right, I think. It does make sense that since my father is attached to her as husband, that it would automatically pull his whole family into the tree! I will detach him & try again & then if it works, re-attach him. Thanks.
