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.

Family Tree Maker - Now owned by MacKiev. They are in the beta testing stage and will be releasing the new version very soon (their words!). I suggest you wait until it is all working OK and then look around for tutorials.

Legacy 9 - Legacy 9 has just been released this March 2017 and has a few extra "bells and whistles" but if you are happy with your current version then stick with it.
This is also one of the few top end genealogy software that allows free unlimited use, albeit a few less features, with no expiry date.
Try for as long as you like.
This is my choice of software and the 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".

RootsTech - One of the recent key-note speakers at the largest expo in the USA comparing Ancestry, findmypast, FamilySearch and MyHeritage.

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.

More software can be found at Cora Num's site if your program is not listed here.
