Family Historian and Ancestral Sources genealogical software
This weekend course is designed to be a practical and hands on introduction to Family Historian and Ancestral Sources, how to use them and how to get the best out of them.
The weekend is divided into 4 sessions, each of which will have a demonstration followed by time to put what you have learnt into practice.
Family Historian a powerful, award-winning genealogy program with comprehensive features designed to meet the needs of the beginner and expert alike. Its ability to store a huge range of information and produce attractive reports and family trees and its simple-to-use design, make this program particularly suited for newcomers to using genealogy software but is extremely flexible and customisable to meet the needs of the expert.
Ancestral Sources is a free application, used in conjunction with Family Historian. Most of the information that is added to a family history file originates from one of just a few types of documents, namely birth, marriage and death certificates, church baptisms, marriages and burials and census records. Ancestral Sources makes this far easier and much quicker to enter these.
The course features a quick tour of Family Historian, starting a project, navigation, entering people, facts and notes, inputting photographs, putting in information using Ancestral Sources, working with the internet, queries, mapping, reports, charts and plugins.
The weekend course will be held at the Chorley Family History Research Centre at Astley Hall on the 12/13 March 2016 and is for those who are new to, or are want to know how to get more from, this software.
The cost will be £40. To book a place or to get more details contact Ron Chapman on 07730 793 990.
