Tuesday's Tip - Mailing Lists (Beginner)

Mailing Lists

Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

Mailing Lists (Beginner)

Legacy has a really nifty built in feature where you can build Mailing Lists of your relatives. You will see these lists on the Mailing Address screen for each person. You can add each person to one or more lists.

Mailing Lists

 

You can get to this screen in two ways, from the Family View and from the Individual's Information screen.

Individual's Information screen

 

You will use this in conjunction with the Address Labels. On the main toolbar go to Reports > Other Reports > Address Labels. On the Who to Print tab you must have Mailing Addresses selected or you won't see the Mailing Lists.

Address Labels

 

Now you can print address labels for a mass mailing like a quarterly family newsletter or holiday cards.  For more information, please see:

If I knew about this feature, I’d forgotten. Thanks for the tip Michele. Even though I’m not a beginner, I still read the tips for beginners because I can always learn something.
