The following information is from the January, 2011 edition of RootsMagic News. This is great news. Legacy Family Tree is having a lot of success with their online classes. I’m sure that RootsMagic will also.
Throughout the year RootsMagic staff travel to various cities teaching RootsMagic classes. They are always asked when they will be visiting different areas of the country (or world). The simple answer is that they just haven’t gotten the cloning process down well enough to do that yet. Good answer, by the way!
So they’re doing the next best thing. They are now offering free online classes. You will be able to sit at your computer and watch as they present classes on everything from getting started with RootsMagic to advanced features like creating custom reports, and everything in between. They’ll also be able to answer questions from attendees. And classes won’t be limited to just RootsMagic. They will be offering classes on their other products as well: Personal Historian, Family Atlas, and Family Reunion Organizer.
Each class will be limited to the first 1000 people to sign up, but if you miss out or can’t make it, don’t worry because they will record the class for you to download and watch later.
Here are the first 5 classes they will be offering:
