Excellent opportunity for WCGS members who use Family Tree Maker 2019 coming soon!

If you are a WCGS member who uses Family Tree Maker 2019 and you are looking for a collaborative experience to boost your skill level, you will be interested in this upcoming effort from Cynthia Gage, WCGS Webmaster and FTM SIG facilitator. Details from Cynthia:

New SIG Discussing Family Tree Maker 2019
WCGS is starting a new Special Interest Group (SIG) for society members who are users of FTM 2019. What is a SIG, you ask? Well, it’s NOT a class nor a series of lectures nor instructor-led training. Instead, it is a collaborative format for folks to share tips and tricks to help each other on a specific topic. For the FTM SIG each session will address a pre-selected feature such as resolving places, adding media, creating citations, etc. Then a member with some knowledge on the topic will lead the session, and others will contribute to the discussion with questions or their own tips. All levels of experience are welcome. The goal is to improve everyone’s skill sets. Sessions will be held on Zoom.
The FTM SIG will meet on a Saturday morning, once every two or three months, depending on the desires of the SIG members. The first meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 15 from 10:30 to noon. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to the WCGS webmaster to get on the registration list. As we get closer to the first meeting, an email will be sent out with the Zoom link to those on the list. Any notes or handouts shared in the SIG sessions will be posted in the Members area of the website and available to all WCGS members.
