"Introduction to Family Tree Maker"
By Mark Olsen (Family Tree Maker Ambassador) Sponsored by Milwaukee County Genealogical Society (MCGS)
Join us for an introduction to the current version of Family Tree Maker. We will discuss Family Tree Maker and what makes it different than other genealogy products and software. We will focus on a quick walk through of the various family tree building features from how to get and install the software and move on to basic use and creating or downloading your very own family tree. We will discuss how it works with Ancestry.com and with FamilySearch and be happy to discuss all your questions.
We will also discuss Family Tree Maker partner products - Charting Companion and Family Book Creator - both are amazing plug-ins that can help you create incredible charts, graphs, and books.
Mark Olsen is the Family Tree Maker Ambassador to historical and genealogical societies around the world working to support their members as they use Family Tree Maker. Mark is a graduate of Brigham Young University and holds a bachelor's degree in Family History with a Spanish records emphasis.
