BCGS Legacy Group – Notes for the 27 May 2014 meeting
The next Legacy Family Tree – Virtual User’s Group Meeting is Friday, 11 July, 2014. Register here: http://www.familytreewebinars.com/webinar_details.php?webinar_id=233
The first one was 2 May and a panel from Legacy (Millennia) staff presented favourite features. Both the video and handout are available free on-line.
Many tips were shared during that meeting, including a new feature in Legacy 8 – the ‘Who Was Alive On…’ tool – useful perhaps particularly in determining eligibility or likelihood of military service. Read Geoff Rasmussen’s discussion of this tool here: http://news.legacyfamilytree.com/legacy_news/2014/05/legacy-tip-using-the-who-was-alive-on-tool.html
Geoff’s latest blog post is about adding photos to charts especially for family reunions. Yes, it’s almost summer: http://news.legacyfamilytree.com/legacy_news/2014/05/this-july-my-mothers-grandparents-family-will-hold-their-first-family-reunion-in-twenty-years-ive-been-asked-to-come-up-with.html
Michelle Simmons Lewis, one of those in the Legacy staff panel at the virtual Legacy meeting, has her own familly history blog, Ancestoring: http://ancestoring.blogspot.com
From time to time she writes about Legacy too. Here’s a useful article, “A Few Legacy Shortcuts”. It’s worthwhile going through all these and trying them out in Legacy while reading: http://ancestoring.blogspot.ca/2013/11/a-few-legacy-shortcuts.html We might try looking at these during our next BCGS Legacy group meeting. ( Easier to do/show than to explain.)
