CVGS Workshop on Sunday, 4 November: "RootsMagic Workshop 2"

The next CVGS Workshop will be on Sunday, 4 November from 1 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library (4375 Bonita Road) in the Community Room. 

 The topic will be ”RootsMagic 5 Workshop – Part 2” led by Randy Seaver. We had the first workshop in August. Many users requested a second workshop devoted to answering questions about using RootsMagic 5 genealogy software on their PC or Mac computers. 

Some of the more advanced features of RootsMagic 5 we will explore include:

*  The Web Search feature - how to search from within RootsMagic to find records in online sites like Ancestry, FamilySearch, etc.

*  The To-Do List - how to create and maintain To-Do items

*  The  Research Manager - how to create and maintain research logs

*  Problem Reports - how to find potential errors in your database

*  Media Gallery - how to manage media, including tagging persons and events

*  Book Publisher  - how to create a book about your family, including media, charts, etc. 

Randy will solicit questions before the workshop, and during the workshop, about using RootsMagic 5. Bring your laptop with RootsMagic 5 installed so you can work along with Randy.
