The new training cds sound interesting. I will certainly check them out. I have all the previous cds, including "Mastering Legacy Family Tree: Names, Dates, and Places". I find it the most easily used cd in the set, because "Lesson Handouts" containing all the information in outline form are provided. I like having a paper copy. Perhaps Geoff will include a similar written outline with the new cds.

I am having difficulty attaching census forms and photos directly from Ancestry into my Legacy program. Is there help available for this on a training CD? If so, where would I go for this info? I would love one for the future.

Karen, after saving the image at Ancestry to your hard drive, you would then link that image in Legacy. Yes, the soon-to-be-released Pictures video covers this.
