WEBINAR: Integrating Genealogy Software with Online Discoveries


DearREADERS,
In the olden days genealogists did their research in dusty archives and libraries, made copies of “proof” documents, and attached them to the appropriate ancestors in their desktop computer’s genealogy management program within a few weeks of a research trip.

As genealogy websites increase in sophistication, it’s possible to link online scanned images to ancestors in online trees, and collaborate by sharing images and other multi-media files with other diligent researchers. This will be demonstrated using RootsMagic 5, and using Family Tree Maker 2012 (with Ancestry.com) during this webinar.

Merely using a home computer to compile genealogy will soon be dwarfed by the increased use of laptops, library computers and hand-helds such as tablets and smart phones. Ensuring that all locations of your genealogy database are accurately updated is in its infancy.

Russ Worthington and DearMYRTLE share experiences attaching document images to ancestors in the collaborative online environment of Ancestry.com. Be sure to obtain a .PDF copy of the handouts for this class during the presentation as there are comparisons of various desktop and handheld software programs.
