Research Notes – 2019-3-11

This year’s North Florida Genealogy Conference was full of fascinating presentations on a broad range of topics. Better yet, since it is much smaller than the national conferences, there’s plenty of time to connect with other attendees. Thanks to Pat Tanner and Sue Didomenico for their help setting up and tearing down our society’s table.

This Saturday Connie Bradshaw is our speaker showing us how to Unlock the Mystery of Autosomal DNA Testing.  After her Q&A, Margaret Nicholson will demonstrate tips on creating and publishing your own family histories. See you Saturday!


From Family Tree Maker . . .

It’s been thirty years since Family Tree Maker was born and it’s only fitting that we will be introducing a new edition this year that takes this grand old brand to places its original creators could only have dreamed about back in 1989. No longer is an isolated application, Family Tree Maker becomes the center of a growing digital ecosystem, where every change you make to your tree on your Mac or PC is instantly and automatically made in a linked TreeVault cloud tree that you can view from any mobile device with the free FTM Connect app. Where the memories of living relatives are captured in tappable soundspots in their old photos — using AlbumWALK on a mobile device – and whisked back to Family Tree Maker, and linked to people in your tree. Where you can arrange for your tree to be passed on to a relative of your choice along with your Family Tree Maker license to ensure your legacy lives on. That’s just part of the upcoming 30th Anniversary Edition of Family Tree Maker – and we’re only getting started.
