We have a workshop for Macintosh users interested in Genealogy on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The next meeting will be Wednesday, September 14th, 2016, 7pm.
We will cover any Mac Genealogy challenges or questions you have. Also covered are how to use Macintosh computers, effectively. We recommend use of the Reunion Genealogy program (http://leisterpro.com) and can help learn how to use it. Any questions about the Macintosh and genealogy are welcome. This month we will cover importing and exporting Gedcom files and Reunion shortcuts.
Bring a sandwich, come early to the FamilySearch Library, do some research and have your food in their lunch room before the meeting, that starts at 7pm. The view of the Bay Area as you pull into the parking lot is breathtaking. See for yourself.
