I think I am going to do a series of Legacy specific posts. I answer a gazillion questions about Legacy while I am working but I am also answering them on several different Facebook pages. If you have a question about how to do something in Legacy let me know and I will post it on the this page. I love to do screenshots so I should be able to show you how to do anything you want to know how to do. If you don’t use Legacy (yet) this will give you an opportunity to see what the program can do. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One thing I would like to mention. Legacy is a very full-featured program and it takes awhile to learn all of the things it can do. We have some things that will help you. Here are some FREE videos and webinars.
Don’t forget the Help File. If you go to Help > Help Index over on the right you will see links to Tutorial Lessons, Step-by-step Instructions and my favorite, Tips and Tricks. We also have an online Knowledge Base that is searchable.
Also, there is usually more than one way to do something in Legacy. It is set up that way on purpose because different people like to do things in different ways. Legacy is pretty flexible. Here is one simple example, some people like to create a Census event and then attach a copy of the census page to the event. Other people prefer to use the census as a source and they attach a copy of the census page to the source. It is totally personal preference.
