COMPARING GENEALOGICAL SOFTWARE November 16, 2019
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
SGS Library, 6200 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, Washington
Thinking about investing in a genealogical software program that resides on your computer? Have a genealogical software program, but are thinking of switching? Or are you just interested in what is “out there”? All these are reasons to attend the upcoming session on three of the top genealogical programs–Legacy, Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic. A panel of three users will discuss the advantages and challenges of each of the three and illustrate some of the features of each.
Mollie, long time SGS Member, passed away on May 21st and a memorial service was held for her in Seattle on June 8th. Besides raising seven children and having a 50 year nursing career, Mollie, at one time, served as the head of the Nominating Committee, the most miserable job in the SGS organization.
Our condolences to Mollie’s family & friends. Her full obituary is available at:
