Roots Magic Workshop


Greetings Fulton County Genealogical Society Members,
At the last meeting of the Fulton County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, I volunteered to do a Roots Magic workshop to help anyone that would like to learn more about the software and how to use it.  Among some of the things I will be covering:
v Basic input
v How to add sources and media
v How to print reports
v Exporting and importing
v Working with and combining files
v Questions you may have
I’m planning on doing this sometime in late July or early to mid-August at the Epiphany Community Services conference room on Main Street in Swanton.  Please let me know if you would like to attend and if you have any time you will be unavailable this summer.  Space is limited so let me know soon.

We will firm up time and date when we figure out what works best for all who want to attend.

Our June 10th meeting will be our annual Spring Banquet.  Plans are in the works, and our theme for this years banquet is"Genealogy Springs Eternal."  Our guest speaker will be one of our very own members Jana Sloan Broglin.  The title of her talk will be "Preparing to Publish Your Family History."  A subject we all could use a little help with, I'm sure.  It was decided that the banquet should be held at our usual meeting site, Trinity Lutheran Church, 410 Taylor Street, Delta, Ohio.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $15.00 per person (same as last year), and the reservations deadline is Sunday, June 1st.  Our buffet will be catered by the Swanton Health Care & Retirement Center, and from all accounts it should be delicious!  We will hold an installation of new officers and honor our "volunteer of the year" as well.  You won't want to miss this banquet.  It's always a fun time, so send in your reservation now to:  Fulton County Chapter OGS, P.O. Box 337, Swanton, OH  43558, or contact Kathy Seigneur by email at aunt.kate23@yahoo.com
