Description:

This class will build on our previous classes where we have learned to navigate Family Tree Maker, start a tree, and add in some of our data. We will next learn how to access the data available at Ancestry.com, through "hints" and searches, and the process of merging that data into our tree. We will also look at pulling in data found from other websites on the internet. Either Family Tree Maker 2014 or 2017 will be used in the classroom.
