Joe Leavitt

Joseph Leavitt is the Family History Committee Chairman and Genealogical Database Manager for the Western Association of Leavitt Families (www.leavittfamilies.org). His retirement from a 37-year career with IBM in 2002 has allowed him time to assist the many patrons of the Orange County FamilySearch Library. You will find him there on Wednesday mornings from 9 AM to 1 PM. He has written many instructional articles, and taught numerous classes on the use of genealogy records management programs and related utilities. He favors the Legacy Family Tree genealogy program, and will be presenting helpful information about this program at the library's annual Family History Fair.

2016 Sessions with Joe Leavitt

5C
Legacy — The Hub of the Research Process
And — The Joy of Tagging
Syllabus: 2016/5C_Manage_Research_Using_Legacy.pdf

In this presentation I will discuss features in Legacy which can greatly enhance your ability to grow and improve your family tree. Legacy does well in keeping your data and media organized, but it goes way beyond that to provide wonderful helps and aids during your research, and in sharing with family and others in various kinds of ways. With Legacy, it can, after all, be fun and easy to "do genealogy."

I expect that everyone attending will find this presentation helpful, whether they are beginners or advanced Legacy users.
