Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 10:00 am

Many genealogists, even those using free or subscription-based web programs (e.g., FamilySearch or Ancestry), find it useful to have stand-alone programs to keep their family history information. This class will discuss genealogy software that you can use to keep your family history information outside of the web-based genealogy programs. It will discuss programs that can be used on computers and mobile devices using various operating software - Microsoft Windows (PC’s), Apple MacOS (Mac’s) Linux, and Android and Apple iOS – many of which interface with the web-based programs.
