Joint meeting with the Family Historian Zoom group: ‘Possible uses of Family Historian for One-Place Studies’

Family history software now goes far beyond recording the dates and events of our direct ancestors. Please join us for this extra webinar in which power users of Family Historian look at how they use it to help their studies. Topics include geolocation, querying and making connections between data, working with unrelated families, visualising data, handling media, export options…all with a focus on place rather than person.
Those of us who already use Family Historian for our places will get new ideas about its possibilities. Those of us who don’t will still get ideas to explore within the programs we do use.
This is one of an occasional series of webinars concentrating on specific programs or techniques. If you have other suggestions please get in touch and we will explore these.
