Legacy Family Tree update available (
New Legacy User Group in Paraguay and our 2010 calendar

We're giving away 2 netbook computers this weekend

AcerHere's a little extra incentive to stop by the Legacy Family Tree booth at the Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree 2010 this weekend(begins Friday, June 11, 2010 in Burbank, California). We're giving away two free Acer Netbook computers.

The drawing is open to registered attendees and the entry form (a simple, fun crossword puzzle) will be included with your registration materials. Just fill out the puzzle and turn it in to the Legacy booth.

When will the drawings be held?

The first drawing will be held during my/Geoff Rasmussen's 6:15pm class on Saturday entitled "Brick Walls Be Gone: Using Legacy's Research Guidance and To Do List tools". This class will be held in the Pavilion ("the tent") directly behind the Convention Center, adjacent to the lawn. So be sure to turn in your entry form before 6:00pm on Saturday to be eligible for this first drawing.

The second drawing will be held at the very end of the conference on Sunday with the grand prize drawings. If your entry form was not selected for the first drawing, it will still be available to be drawn for this second drawing. Be sure to turn in your entry form before the last class on Sunday.

Download the entry form

All the contest rules (like you must be present to win, etc.) are explained on the entry form. Click here to download the form, or you can obtain yours in the registration packet at the conference starting Thursday evening (for pre-registrants). If you cannot make it to the conference, download the form anyways - it's a fun crossword puzzle!

Meet the Legacy developers

Legacy's founder, Dave Berdan, and Geoff Rasmussen (that's me) will be at the conference - so bring your questions and suggestions - we look forward to talking with you.

Not fair! I will be going to the dinner with Smolenyak that night which starts before the class is over and will leave me no time to stay until the drawing is held. :-(

Dennis, we're aware of the 7:00 class and will hold the drawing in time for anyone to leave.
