[CA-SCGS] Family Tree Maker Users Group, Sunday, August 11, 2019

 Family Tree Maker Users Group
Sunday, August 11, 2019
4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

At the Jamboree, MacKiev demonstrated some of the features in the yet-to-be-released Family Tree Maker 2019. One of these is Smart Filters. This will be the new name for what has been “saved lists” in FTM 2017, but with a number of significant extensions and improvements. To prepare for this, we will once more take a close look at filters. 

Filters are the real power tool of any database system - 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 Family Tree Maker 2017 added 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). 

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