Thousands of Legacy Family Tree users have relied on the Legacy News blog to bring them the latest genealogy news, Legacy tricks, and technology tips. In fact, many have been begging Legacy to compile, categorize, and index the past six years of articles so you can have a complete guide in one place.

Your wait is over. You now have The Official Unofficial Guide to Using Legacy Family Tree: Plus Research Advice, News, Views, and Technology Tips at your fingertips. There are some books that are meant for the coffee table, but this book, written by Legacy's own Geoff Rasmussen, belongs with you at your computer.

From the very first page you will notice that this book is much more than a boring instructional manual – it is full of real-life examples that not only teach you the right buttons to push, but it thoroughly explains how to get the most out of Legacy Family Tree.

You will also learn about the latest genealogy technologies, methods of organizing your paper files, and read inspirational stories that can help lead you to one Genealogy Happy Dance after another.

After graduating with his genealogy degree, Geoff thought his days of endless writing were finally over. Little did he know how much he would enjoy writing these articles for our Legacy News blog. Each article in this book includes a link back to the original article on the blog so you can read all of the comments left by others, or add your own.
