Family Tree Maker (FTM) is teaming up with the Wake County Genealogical Society for one evening to teach existing and potential users the how-to's of FTM and to present some new and exciting features which are coming later this year with the release of FTM 2019. The presentation will also introduce their partner printing products, Charting Companion and Family Book Creator. And the talk will dive into how to use your DNA results to validate your current family tree. This is a great opportunity to learn about these products - straight from the exhibit hall at the NGS National Conference!
