|Saturday, 18 February||Introduction to RootsMagic 8 (Windows and Mac)
|RootsMagic 8, the long-awaited rewrite of this popular genealogy software program, was released in October 2021. This hands-on introductory class will walk you through key features: creating a new tree from scratch; importing an existing tree from another program; adding and maintaining people, places, and media; and managing sources and citations. Also, you will learn how to synchronize your RootsMagic tree with both Ancestry and FamilySearch. This version of RootsMagic is very different from past versions, so everyone will benefit from this class.|

|If you have received DNA testing results and don’t know what to do with them or are just contemplating taking a test, you will want to participate in this basic DNA class.
