Update From the RootsMagic SIG

The best-attended Thursday evening discussion of the summer “extended hours” program was the August 26, 2010 session on Using RootsMagic 4 led by Tim Cox. It was so successful that the group decided to meet on an on-going basis. The new RootsMagic Special Interest Group started meeting in October on the third Tuesday of the month.

Tim reports that the group is growing in size – twelve attended the November 16, 2010 session, including one new member who drove from Novato. The discussion this month was about entering sources properly, creating roles and working with charts.

The next SIG meeting will be held one week early – on  Tuesday, December 14, 2010, at 6:30 p.m., because of the busy holiday week. In January 2011, the schedule will return to the third Tuesday format.
Meeting dates in the first quarter of the new year will be:
  • January 18, 2011
  • February 15, 2011
  • March 15, 2011
All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. in the CGS Library, 2201 Broadway, Suite LL2, Oakland.

SIG members are encouraged to bring their laptops or their RootsMagic databases on a flash drive.  During meetings, the group projects a copy of a live data base on a screen for easy viewing.

Please email Tim Cox with questions about the RootsMagic SIG meetings.
