Dear Folks

I wonder if anyone can suggest a solution to a problem with the 
placement of a genealogy tree using pst-tree commands. I am using MikTex 
on Windows 2000, compiling to DVI then using DVIPS. My document begins 
with the following setup:


The tree commands I use closely follow examples found on:


and have generally worked the way I want.

However, the final tree is offset on the page, in fact, parts of it 
disappear off the right hand side of the page, even though there is a 
large amount of space left on the left hand side.

I have tried various memoir settings to change the typeblock and 
textwidth etc but to no avail. It seems that the the pst-tree commands 
have their own way of placing the tree at a certain location to begin 
with, and then it simply expands outwards from that location. I have 
studied some of the pstricks commands but am not familiar enough with 
them to know how to hack the pst-tree.tex file to change the way ps-tree 

Any advice would be most appeciated.

Kind regards,
