January Meeting

Our next meeting will be held at 1:30 pm on Sunday, January 26, 2020. This meeting will be held in Room 1AB, Women's Health Center, St. Joseph Hospital Campus, 5320 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, MI. 
The program and class this month will focus on Family Tree Software.
"Family Tree Software Choices"
Led by GSWC Member Nancy Howard
There are several different family tree building software applications on the market today. First, we’ll differentiate between applications that reside on your computer and online search/tree building sites that store your information in “the cloud,” such as Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, etc. We will then compare features of the most popular software applications, including Family Tree Maker, Legacy and others. Current users of those applications will discuss pros and cons based on their experience.
Beginning at 3:15 pm.
"Family Tree Maker and..." 
Led by GSWC Member Rodger Wolf
Results of the recent member survey show that the greatest interest is in Family Tree Maker. This class will focus on FTM 2019—what’s new and best practices. Those who use Legacy, Roots Magic (and possibly other) applications can connect with fellow users to share tips & techniques.
