A FULL-DAY WORKSHOP, SATURDAY, JUNE 7

Most people use less than 20% of Family Tree Maker’s capabilities. Here’s a chance to learn more about Family Tree Maker so you can decide which other features and options will help you to best record and share your family history using Family Tree Maker.

Benefit from dozens of hints and tips that will help you improve your results using Family Tree Maker. Discover the best techniques for entering information, dealing with conflicting dates and events and recording sources. Learn how to make professional quality genealogy charts and reports at the click of a mouse that your family will treasure for generations. A TreeSync segment will show you how to access and update your family file from anywhere.

Instructor: Rick Roberts
Rick Roberts
Rick Roberts’ interest in family history began during summer vacations on his grandparents’ farm, listening to his grandmother’s well-worn family stories. That early spark grew into a passion for genealogy and history that led to the founding of Global Genealogy in 1992. Rick is especially interested in the events in history that influenced the lives of his ancestors, what pushed them to make the decisions that they did and what pulled them to the lives that they led. Rick’s early interest in genealogy has evolved into GlobalGenealogy.com, an online retail store selling many family history products, and Global Heritage Press, which publishes numerous history and genealogy titles.

HOW TO GET TO THE WORKSHOP

By public transit: North York Central Library is connected directly to the North York Centre subway station, on the Yonge line. Inter-city trains and buses link with the subway at Union, Dundas, or York Mills stations. Allow at least 35 minutes from Union or Dundas, or 15 minutes from York Mills, to get to North York Centre.

By car: North York Central Library is at 5120 Yonge Street, Toronto  M2N 5N9, on the west side at Park Home Avenue (about halfway between Sheppard and Finch). From Highway 401, exit northbound at Yonge Street; proceed north to Park Home Avenue (6th or 7th traffic light) and turn left. The most convenient parking ($5 per day on Saturdays) is under the building—enter from Novotel on Park Home Avenue, or from Beecroft Road (parallel and west of Yonge Street).
