Erica, do you have any program on your computer that you use to record your information? I use Legacy Family Tree. They have a free version you can download and a nicer version you can purchase. The good thing with it is you can do all your work offline, then publish your findings later to sites like Ancestry.com.
I don't. I canceled my account a few months ago because it's so expensive, but I don't think they erase your tree. I did print several things I wanted to keep as well. I will go back to it again when I have more time. I really enjoyed it.
