If you did not make it to Hemet, California three weeks ago for the Hemet-San Jacinto Genealogical Society's "Genealogy Technology with Legacy's Geoff Rasmussen seminar" (that's me!) here's your second chance. We recorded the seminar and have now published the Legacy classes for everyone to view.
In the past, we couldn't make it to every genealogy society around the world that wanted us to demonstrate Legacy. But with technology, we can now bring a seminar to the comforts of your own home. You can even attend this seminar in your pajamas.
Publishing these "live" seminar classes is somewhat of a risk for me, because now the whole world gets to experience my dry humor and sometimes foot-in-the-mouth jokes which don't appear in our Legacy Training Video collection. But since one of my goals is to help others with genealogy and Legacy, I guess it's worth the risk....
We've published two of the seminar's four classes for you to view.
Legacy Family Tree - an Overview (54 minutes) is intended for those who are new to Legacy but is also a great refresher course for experienced Legacy users. Topics include:
- importing from another genealogy computer program
- setting and understanding relationships
- 1/2 siblings
- setting your direct line
- To Do List
- Research Guidance
Legacy Family Tree - Tips and Tricks (58 minutes) is intended for those who are experienced Legacy users, but everyone is welcome to view it. Topics include:
- effective use of events/facts
- adding historical events to timelines
- successfully obtaining information from living relatives
- creating books
- using Legacy Charting
- Descendant and Index View tips
- using the split screen feature
- what to do when you have an unproven relative
- how to add unlinked individuals
- family group records
