Tuesday's Tip - Tools Toolbar (Beginner)

TT - Tools Toolbar

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

The Tools Toolbar is where all of the cool stuff is (in my opinion). You will probably access this toolbar every day you are working on your file. I will let you click on all of the options on your own so that you can see what all you can do here. Don't forget that every screen in Legacy has it's own Help button that will take you to the correct place in the Help File so that you don't have to do a search.

There are three icons that have submenus, Merge Duplicates, US County Verifier, and Other Tools. The Other Tools also has a secondary submenu (Research Tools).
