When I responded, above, I thought about combining the trees, but decided not to recommend that. If the 20 families represent one community, and she has traced each family back 4 or 5 generations she could have reasonably have 1500 to 3000 people in each tree. This would mean that the total number of people in the combined trees could be from 30000 to 60000 people well beyond the capabilities for a reasonably performing FTM family tree.

In fact looking at it this way, a database application like Access may be better than a spread sheet.
