Legacy 7.4 update - yes, it's really free
Using Legacy on your main computer and your laptop - how to exchange information and multimedia

Upcoming Legacy classes and seminars - February/March 2010

We've got a busy couple of months ahead of us. We wish we could be all places at once (I guess we are trying - three separate events on February 26). We'd like to visit your genealogy society too. We often give Legacy classes or even full/half day seminars on genealogy technology topics. If you/your society is interested, let us know and we'll send details.

If we're not personally visiting your city soon, there still may be a Legacy User Group meeting in your area. See http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/UsersGroups.asp for a list of user groups around the world.

Here's where we'll be in the next couple of months:

Any chance you may be giving a seminar in Washington State in the future? Thank you, Peggy.

Peggy - yes, we are there a couple of times a year, and there's at least one user group that I'm aware of. See http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/Calendar2010.asp for our complete 2010 calendar.

When will there be a seminar somewhere in the Northeast?

I wanted to thank you for giving me a new Acer Laptop at the drawing during the West Valley Genealogical Society's annual seminar featuring Lloyd de Witt Bockstruck. I was totally surprised to win such a fine gift.

And while I am at it I also wanted to thank you for producing such a fine product with Legacy. I keep learning new things that it will do all of the time, and it is very impressive.

Thank you very much,
A very happy customer,
Carolyn K. Filer

Will you be in Knoxville, TN in August 2010?


Marilyn - yes we will be in Knoxville. See our full year's calendar at http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/Calendar2010.asp

I live in the mid west, near Chicago, will you ever run a seminary in Chicago? I would also be very interested in any seminars that Passage Express might give.

How about New York City, any plans to come here?

Please consider a visit to New England - the Boston area (New England Historical & Genealogical Society).

I need a HANDS ON TRAINING! So, I was hoping you could do a seminar in St Louis, MO. Is there any possible chance of this in the near future?

We need you here in Atlanta!! I looked at your schedule and saw that you will be in Atlanta in Nov. 2010? Will you have an inservice or as a vendor --- will we be able to come for question and answers -- what type of presentation? Thanks

Suzan, although this seminar hasn't been completely planned yet from our end, we expect to teach several classes, and have a booth where you can ask as many questions as you want. :)
