The Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State will help you with "Genealogy Software: Today and Tomorrow" at its next program at 7pm Monday, February 9, at the Stroum Jewish Community Center on Mercer Island.
This program will help participants narrow down the choices to select one that's right for each person's needs.
The session will look at ways to sort the broad feature sets to help evaluate the programs, and attendees will walk away with a list of criteria to use when selecting a software program.
Also, learn about current and future trends in online software, genealogical social networking and how online genealogy sites can help you connect with others researching the same families in the US and around the world.
