Clara Barton: Her Life and Times in the Lowcountry

Rosemary Staples; Volunteer
Heritage Library Foundation

Clara Barton, Angel of the Battlefield, is most known for her work as a nurse during the Civil War and for founding the American Red Cross in 1881.  But did you know she was a teacher, that she founded New Jersey’s public schools, and was the first woman to work in the U.S. Patent Office? Clara was also a feminist,  abolitionist and distinguished public speaker. Clara visited Hilton Head Island twice in her long career, first during the Civil War and again in 1893 after a major hurricane savaged the Lowcountry.

If you are using a version of Family Tree Maker prior to 2010, or if you are not familiar with this software at all, this is the class for you.  This introduction to FTM 2012 will help you with the basic of entering data and photos into the program.  The very different “work space” found in FTM 2012 will be clarified.  In addition, you will learn how to easily prepare and print basic charts, reports, timelines, etc.  Learn how to add on-line information and sources to your tree without having to hand enter the data.  If you think your old program is “good enough”, this class just might change your mind!
