Please remember to vote!Topic: Family History Reports – Beyond the Basics
As genealogical and historical publishers, the folks at Heritage Muse, David & Kate Kleiman, are always pushing the edge of using existing genealogy software to produce clear, well-designed, and readable, charts and reports for clients. We'll start the basics of what Family Tree Maker and Legacy can both do — and then move to what they need help with. We'll take a quick dip into Master Genealogist's SuperTools and the graphics software for enhancing your presentations (including Adobe Creative Suite, GIMP, and others). Lastly, if there is time we'll show a short video that might inspire some creative ideas for your historic maps.
Got a chart/report that you are proud of? Got one with problem you can't solve? Bring them along and show-and-tell! Hope that you can join us.
