Webinar: FTM 2012 To Do List and such

Well, we finally are getting around to adding more tasks for working on DearMYRTLE's Family Tree Maker 2012 database. With Russ Worthington's one-on-one webinar assistance, I am gradually getting the hang of using Family Tree Maker.

We really drill down on the "To Do" List in the "Plan" workspace - with prioritizing ability, and why Ol 'Myrt may elect to keep things on a task list even though the primary goal was achieved. Add categories, prioritize, cleaning up "place names", several ways to keep research notes, how to exclude USA in place names and much more. Russ assists as Ol' Myrt here likes to print task lists, and place them on a clipboard to work through cleaning up my database.

Alternately, right click the link below and select 'Save As...' or just click to save the file to your computer.

This webinar is in .mp4 format and can be viewed by Windows Media Player, iTunes and most other media players. Tech support has advised me of this free program that will also play the downloaded webinars.

Thank-you, cousin, for sharing your expertise with me! For those of you who haven't met him before, Russ is the author of A Worthington Blog, the FamilyTree Maker User Blog and is co-founder of the BetterGEDCOM Project
My cousin and I always have fun when working on a project together, and he makes learning so much fun. I think you'll get a kick out of our session, hopefully the first of several more as Ol' Myrt here learns how to use Family Tree Maker 2012.

Happy family tree climbing!
