GETTING THE MOST OUT OF FAMILY TREE MAKER:

A WORKSHOP WITH TIPS FOR BEGINNERS AND PROS

Presented by Diane Jacobs, Ph.D. and Richard Signer, M.D. 

A Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando Program

  • Are you using Family Tree Maker® for recording your family tree?
  • Are you thinking of using it?
  • Do you have questions about its features and how it can help you research, organize and share your family history?

Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando for a workshop with demonstrations on how to start and build a tree and take advantage of some of its more advanced features.

TWO COPIES OF FAMILY TREE MAKER WILL BE RAFFLED OFF!

Family Tree Maker® is one of the most widely used software programs for creating and building family trees.  It is designed to be intuitive to use and is easy to navigate.  Over its thirty-year history, it has developed many useful features, enabling novices to continue to add new information and depth to their family histories. Two of our members will demonstrate how each has used this software to record and research their family’s history.  Members who have the software are encouraged to bring laptops with the software and their trees.  Time will be made available for Q and A as well as helping individuals or small groups.
