Genealogy with RootsMagic

Are you looking to start entering all your relatives, facts, and documents into a genealogy management application, or trying to better understand your new installation of RootsMagic™, or want to move over to RootsMagic from another program? This 3-part class is designed for you.

Professional Genealogist Hillary Schau will guide you through the process in these hands-on classes.

Class 1
Saturday, September 7th 9:00am
Monday September 9th 10:00am
The first class will provide an overview of the program, both the free version and the upgraded version. We will then go over the installation and the features as well as the process for entering the first people in your tree and/or uploading a Gedcom from Ancestry.com or Family Tree Maker™.

Class 2
Saturday September 14th 9:00am
Monday September 16th 10:00am
The second class will continue with a focus on sources and citations to more easily and consistently document where facts are discovered. We will also explore the web search feature of the program and how it can be modified to include any sites that you are currently subscribed to as well as the free sites you enjoy visiting.

Class 3
Saturday September 21st 9:00am
Monday September 23rd 10:00am
The third class will cover the various reports and charts available to you through your RootsMagic™ program. In this session we will also provide tips and tricks to aid in entering and reviewing your information and best practices in backing up.

Note: These classes will take place prior to open hours. Please knock on the door to gain access into the library. 18+

Participation in all three classes is recommended, but not required. Saturday and Monday classes duplicate each other, you need only attend one, not both. Participants can bring their own laptops for use.
