Software Tutorials

There is great value in visiting your software home pages to see if there are tutorial and webinars to help you get the most from your program.

Ancestral Quest - Explore the menu bar on the right as well as the tabs at the top if this is your software of choice.

Family Historian - A static tour of another popular program.

Family Tree Maker - There are some good value tutorials and webinars **here**. There are now some great demos on Youtube. Go looking for Ancestry Anne. Just type in Family tree Maker in Youtube Search and have a look. You can start **here**. Ancestry Anne has a blog page **here** with all sorts of interesting stuff. Investigate the Archives link in the right menu.

Legacy 7 - This is my choice of program and the recent webinars are excellent. Click on the Training tab and go to Webinars. There are expiry dates for some of these webinars so watch these ones first if they interest you. "New FamilySearch Made Easy" is a look at what is coming up later in the year. Don't worry that it is "Legacy" orientated, it will more than likely be incorporated into all software when it comes available. (See Roots Magic) Currently, full access is only available to LDS members while they "tweak" the system. Make a note of the upcoming seminars so that you don't miss out watching them when they are published the next day. You don't have to be a Legacy user to register for the "live" seminars. 3am USA time doesn't appeal to me!
I almost forgot, the Help Center tab also has some excellent tips and tricks as well.

Roots Magic - Click on "Getting Started" and don't miss the link to "tutorials on using RootsMagic with New FamilySearch".

The Master Genealogist - Their claim ... "is the gold standard in family history software. Used by novices and professional researchers alike."

PAF - Personal Ancestral File has been discontinued from July 15 2013
