Oh no, not more RootsTech!
Yes, I am still here and still going to classes and listening to presenters. The next 2nd day class was Geoff Rasmussen of Legacy Family Tree entitled, "Stop Wasting Time with NFS: Better Practices to Improve Your Time Online." After highlighting some of the problems with New.FamilySearch.org, Geoff goes on to show better data practices and highlight geographical editors including Atlas of Historical County Boundaries from the Newberry Library. This is reference work designed to provide information about the creation and boundary changes of every county in the United States, from the earliest county creation in the 1600s to 2000. This presentation will need more elaboration. So stay tuned for an updated review of the new features in Legacy Family Tree, also my computer is running out of battery power and I need to find an outlet.
