“Honey, I’ve got the divorce papers” didn’t come out of Geoff’s mouth how he intended when he showed his wife the package he received in the mail. It was a divorce case from 1879 which, although heartbreaking, began to unlock the identities of the children of Marsden and Jane Brown.
In this webinar, Legacy’s Geoff Rasmussen will begin to document and assemble the family using records he recently discovered (divorce papers, census records, obituaries, and marriage records). You are invited to watch live as he adds the information to his personal Legacy family file. In this live, unscripted session, Geoff will talk his way through setting up the source clipboard, adding custom events, utilizing the To Do List, stitching multiple pages into a combined digital file, and adding the new information he found. Viewers will learn data entry and analysis skills for most efficiently using Legacy Family Tree to assemble ancestral families.
