There is no newsletter in July. But there will be a combined newsletter in August. Then we will resume our normal newsletter delivery schedule.
Program Topics Beyond June
There will be NO MEETING in July!
AUGUST — In August, we will have a Work Session! Bring your laptops, problems, projects – and Participate. So that we can include our join.me participants, we will be performing a test run for join.me during the first 15-20 minutes or so. This is mainly for passing the PRESENTER role among those who would like to do so. Then the excitement begins!
SEPTEMBER — On 9 September, we will have two sessions: (1) "HRE Update and Live Q&A" by Robin Lamacraft and Don Ferguson, and (2) "Migration Toolkit" by Barbara Levergood.
We will start with a pre-recorded video update on HRE by Robin Lamacraft from 9:00-10:00am. Then Robin and Don Ferguson will be live from Australia (Robin in Adelaide and Don in Melbourne) and John Lucas will be live on-site at 10:00am to take questions. To learn about HRE progress, go to
Following a short break, at about 10:40am, Barbara will have an hour presentation about her Migration Toolkit; this will also be followed by a Q&A session.
OCTOBER — In October, Geoff Rasmussen is scheduled to make a presentation (remotely) about Legacy 9 – "Learning About Legacy Family Tree Software".
NOVEMBER — John Clark is tentatively scheduled to present "Genealogical Trees AND Genetic Trees using TMG" at our first session in November.
There is a good possibility that John Cardinal may make a presentation later this year.
We need help! We need an expanded pool of presenters, whether speaking on site at our meetings or presenting remotely via join.me. Suggestions and offers of support should be addressed to:
