[CA-SCGS] Family Tree Maker User Group meeting, December 10, 2017

from Dick Humphrey, leader of the FTM User Group.

Preparing to Retire (from) your Family Tree

How will it end? What will happen to the years of searching, the binders of documents and the albums of photos? What if you would like to step away from it all before – well, you know!  At this meeting, user group leader Dick Humphrey will share some of his personal goals, approaches, strategies and tips for dealing with family history. Although some illustrations will use Family Tree Maker, all are applicable to other applications.

Regardless of your genealogy software preference, join us and for this thought-provoking session.

Dick will also be at the library by 2:30 pm to chat and provide FTM assistance.
