“Learning How to Use the FamilySearch Family Tree, Part 1” 
Presenter: Gary Petranek
 The FamilySearch Family Tree is a collaborative, community-based website with a unique platform: every person has a “page” and occupies just one place on the tree. Researchers can access the “personal page” of a deceased person, and view vital information, photos, documents, stories, and sources. This platform fosters collaboration as people work together on one ancestor, in one place. Part 1 will teach how to navigate the Tree, add/delete/modify a “personal page.”
Saturday, April 22 at 10:00 a.m.
