Family Tree Maker 2012 Workshop on Saturday, 5 January

There will be a "Family Tree Maker 2012 Workshop" led by Randy Seaver, sponsored by the Chula Vista Genealogical Society, on Saturday, 5 January from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library (4375 Bonita Road) in the Community Room.   

If you have Family Tree Maker genealogy software, then please bring your laptop or netbook (if you have one) to the workshop and work along with Randy, ask questions, and learn more about using the program.  If you don't have Family Tree Maker, but are interested in the subject of genealogy software, please attend to see what a typical program can do to help you with your genealogy organization and research. 

The plan for the workshop is to:

1)  Provide an overview of Family Tree Maker 2012 menus and the Help function using my own database.
