New class handout added: “Beyond Pedigree Charts – Using Your Genealogy Software’s Research Tools”

Thursday, March 7th, I will present a class called “Beyond Pedigree Charts:  Using Your Genealogy Software’s Research Tools” at the Monterey County Genealogy Society in Seaside, California.  I added a handout for the class under “Class Handouts” on the menu bar.

Genealogy software is a great way to keep track of the branches on a family tree, and an easy way to print updated pedigree charts, but our favorite familiar programs also have some powerful research tools most of us rarely use.  This class will explore some of these tools for planning, searching, organizing, and recording your family history research.


The Monterey County Genealogy Society has free monthly classes the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. You don’t have to be a member to attend, but membership is a bargain at $15 per year if you’d like to join. Click on the link for more details and directions.
