FamilyInsight for Beginners

Presenter: Cina Johnson

We spend time learning what the program does and how to open your genealogy file into FamilyInsight. You will be familiarized with the screen layout as we review the fundamentals of using each feature (mode) of the program. Some of these features include finding out if you have unlinked people or pedigrees, or duplicate records for some individuals, in your file. You will learn how you can improve your file by correcting your place names so they are consistent and recognized by FamilySearch.

By cleaning up you file, not only will it be a better quality file but you will be better prepared to search for your family on FamilySearch. FamilyInsight is a powerful but often underutilized tool and this class will help you make better use of the program.
