Wondering what genealogy software to use? Did you import data to a new
program and now have to clean up your files? Does the data you entered years
ago fail your current criteria for completeness of inputting, sourcing, and
consistency? Want to know how to output your data to share with others? Our
speakers will discuss these issues and more to help you understand and use
genealogy software programs, merge files, resolve conflicts, clean up old
files, identify potential issues, and document sources and repositories.
Examples from all major programs will be presented, so you can find the best
software for your own use and see how others have resolved similar problems.
