Learn 'RootsMagic' from an expert
Computer software makes many tasks easier. However, teaching yourself how the software works can be wrought with frustrations and involve much time. Knowing that it always is easier to learn from someone who regularly uses the software, Hayes Library Head Librarian Becky Hill offers a Using RootsMagic class 9:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, November 3 at the Hayes Presidential Center. Cost is $10/adults and $5/students through high school. Pre-registration is required. Partial funding for the class is provided by RootsMagic, Inc. [NOTE: The incorrect date for the class was listed in the print version of the October 'Billet.']
RootsMagic is genealogy software known for its ease of use and advanced features – the ability to incorporate photographs and options for sharing. It is one of the most popular software programs of its kind. The Hayes Presidential Center not only uses RootsMagic to maintain the family history of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes, but also sells the resource in its Museum Store.
The class focuses on basics like how to start entering data into the program and how to share what you have entered with other people. Hill is a veteran genealogist and has learned through years of experience that “Using computers to store your genealogical materials is an excellent way to get organized and allows you to easily share information with other researchers or relatives, whether by email or at a reunion.”For information on the class or to register call 419-332-2081, ext. 231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
