New Legacy Training CDs
We will release advance copies of 3 new video training CDs at the conference:

Stop by our booth in the conference center (open to the public at no charge) and be the first to view these new CDs. The set should be available to all Legacy users at the beginning of September 2006.

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.
