Legacy Family TreeIf you are now using Legacy Family Tree software but are not sure you are using it fully to help you with your family history, this one-day workshop could be for you. The workshop is intended for beginner and intermediate users of the software.
The workshop leader Geoff Rasmussen will review the basic techniques for using Legacy Family Tree (versions 7 or 8), highlight what’s new in version 8, and explain how Legacy Family Tree now makes it easy for you to make the best use of LDS Family Search.
