Ancestry.com announced in December 2015 that it will be “retiring” their lineage software program Family Tree Maker. If you are a user of the product you may be uncertain how that decision does or does not affect you as a user of Family Tree Maker.
Perhaps you are a user of the lineage product from Roots Magic. Perhaps you are a user of The Master Genealogist lineage program that is no longer being updated or maintained.
Perhaps the Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) can be of immense assistance to you. The CAGGNI group now is offering a combined Family Tree Maker, Roots Magic and The Master Genealogist SIG . Perhaps you did not take advantage of this resource in the past. Perhaps now would be the time if you are in a state of confusion on all things related to any of the three lineage software products being offered in the SIG.
The combined lineage program SIG of CAGGNI is having their next meeting on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at our own library, the Schaumburg Township District Library located at 130 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg,IL. They will be meeting between 12:45 PM to 2:30 PM.
You can see details of this event in the CAGGNI Calendar of Events at:
The CAGGNI group will be having their regularly scheduled program also on this date at the same location. Their regular program will start at 10:30 AM and is titled “Navigating the Illinois State Archives”. The speaker will be Tina Beaird.
You can make it a long day if you wanted to attend both the SIG and the regular CAGGNI program. You do not have to attend both programs if you choose. Pick the one of interest to you.
All guests are welcome to attend either program. You do not have to be a member of CAGGNI in order to attend. I am sure if you attended and were not a member you may very well think of becoming a member of this wonderful genealogical organization.
