A new Special Interest Group (SIG) has been formed devoted exclusively to the Family Tree Maker™ Software from Ancestry.com. Join the FTM-SIG facilitators Ron Madson and Karen Halfon on the third Saturday of each month, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the CGS classroom.
Many of us interested in Family History have been collecting and storing our information, data, and records of family events in file folders and 3-ring binders. While such systems are fine, for those of us in the computer age there are software programs that make organizing and finding these materials easy. The popular and flexible Family Tree Maker™ Software from Ancestry.com, available for the PC or Mac, will be the focus of this new SIG.
The topic for the January meeting will be the Family Tree Maker "Places" Module.
A new FTM-SIG web site has been created at http://ftm-sig.org where you will find the schedule and topics for the upcoming meetings. The "Help-n-Hints" page of the site has a detailed description of Ron's recommendations for Family History Digital File Organization and Naming Digital Genealogy Files.
Snacks and refreshments will be available.
Class size is limited to 30 attendees. Pre-registration is required.
Special Interest Groups are free to CGS members.
Non-members are welcome to attend one meeting at no charge; thereafter, you may join CGS and attend for free or pay $10 for ech meeting attended.
Register early to confirm your seat.
