RootsMagic User Group Meeting Feb 19

The next meeting of the SCGS RootsMagic User Group will be held this coming Sunday:

Date: Sunday, February 19, 2012
Time: 2-4 PM
Place: SCGS Library
         417 Irving Drive (near Glenoaks) in Burbank
Our February program will over a number of areas following a plan I want to try for the next few meetings. Each month I'd like to have at least one discussion topic in each of a number of categories in order to better cover of range of interests and experience of our meeting attendees. Here's the plan for February -

    - Updating to the latest version of RM 5 and how to find out what it contains.

For the beginner or new user
    - The sidebar - Five different panels

From the Forums
    - Updates to the Places capability and discussion about Places

For advanced users
    - Tools for manipulating and querying the RM database
        SQLite tools for RootsMagic databases are at http://sqlitetoolsforrootsmagic.wikispaces.com/ 

Personal Historian corner
    - Discussion, questions, user experiences with PersonalHistorian 2

Different categories will be emphasized on different months, depending on timeliness and attendee interest, and we may not have time for all categories every month, but above is the general plan.

RootsMagic Webinars - Do you have some favorites from among the 28 Roots Magic webinars that have been presented? See the RM webinar page at http://www.rootsmagic.com/Webinars/ for a complete list. At the meeting, please tell us about one you have found to be helpful.
