Are you entering data into your tree and not doing anything with it? Come to this class to learn what you can create right through your Family Tree Maker program. The class will focus solely on the Publish tab and will cover:

  • making, saving, printing, and sharing standard charts      and reports offered within the Family Tree Maker software
  • creating custom reports not offered in the standard      options
  • embellishing your reports with graphics
  • using the program to generate a personalized book to      print yourself or have printed and spiral-ring bound at a local office      supply company

I will also include orgainzational tips as making a title page, suggestions on dividing family lines in a logical manner, etc.

Prerequisites: This class is intended for those currently using Family Tree Maker 2010 and newer OR those who are interested in learning about the wide range of printing/publishing aspects included in the program. However, this class in NOT intended to teach you the basics of entering date into the program.

If you are using a version of Family Tree Maker (FTM) prior to 2010, or if you are not familiar with this software at all, this is the class for you! This introduction to FTM 2014 will help you with the basics of entering data and photos into the program so that all your research is organized and stored on your computer. Learn how to add online information and sources to your tree without having to hand-enter the data. In addition, you will learn how to back-up your work on an external device such as a flash drive. The class will include the basics of preparing and printing simple charts and reports. If you think your old program is “good enough”, this class just might change your mind!

This is a beginning class for the Family Tree Maker 2014 software; however, it is also appropriate for those using 2010 through 2012. Those attending must have basic computer skills and know the basics of how to search the internet.

Fee: $10 for members; $15 for non-members
