Scrivener Software Series by Lisa Alzo Now Available

Scrivener Series Announcement

Scrivener is a powerful word processing and project management tool that allows you flexibility when working on your family history writing projects. If you're frustrated by the strictly linear approach that most word processing programs take then you will enjoy the drag and drop approach of Scrivener. With this program you can re-arrange or move whole sections of your writing with a simple drag and drop. You can also view your project on a corkboard and as an outline. Veteran writer and genealogist Lisa Alzo takes us on a 5-class series to show us how to use Scrivener. Included in this course are 47 pages of accompanying handouts.

The 5-class series - Scrivener Software

We're working hard to give our webinar subscribers the educational classes they need to maximize their genealogical research!

All five of these new classes are bonus classes in the webinar library.  The webinar previews are always free for non-members to watch.
