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

from Dick Humphrey, leader of the FTM User Group

The real power tool of any database system is the ability to ask questions, that is, ‘set up a filter’ – aka make a ‘query’ - and get a list of results. (Example: list everyone buried in Memorial Park Cemetery.) Filters have been a feature of Family Tree Maker for many, many years. But new in Family Tree Maker 2017 is the ability to save the filter results and give them a color coding (which appears in the Name Index and in the Pedigree and Family Views). 

On Sunday, September 10, at the SCGS Library from 4:00-6:00pm our FTM User Group will focus on understanding filters and setting up criteria for interesting questions. Join us and expand your FTM capabilities.

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