An e-mail update to new genealogical resources and services

Announcement:

RootsMagic -Genealogy Software;

A Beginner’s Class

Saturday, June 9th, 2007 – 9:30 –11:30 a.m.

Hayes Presidential Center

Admission: Free

Head Librarian Becky Hill will expand the genealogy class schedule offered by the Hayes Presidential Center by adding a new session on the genealogical software, RootsMagic. This software is used by the Center for the Hayes family genealogy in-house and online and is sold in the Museum store. Unlike previous years when Bruce Buzbee, the author of RootsMagic, visited Hayes and explained advanced features of the software, this class will focus on basics - how to start entering your data into the program and how to share what you have entered.

Using computers to store your genealogical materials is an excellent way to get organized and allows you to share your information with other researchers or relatives, whether by email or at a reunion.

RootsMagic is a leading genealogical software program that offers advanced features while remaining one of the easiest to use. See their website for further information on the program www.rootsmagic.com

The software ($29.95) and accompanying book ($14.95) will be sold at the Hayes Museum Store at a special, discounted price for the class.

The class is free and open to all, but registration is required. Call 800-998-7737 or email bhill@rbhayes.org to sign up.
