Wondering what genealogy software to use? Did you import data to a new program and now have to clean up your files? Does the data you entered years ago fail your current criteria for completeness of inputting, sourcing, and consistency? Want to know how to output your data to share with others? Our speakers will discuss these issues and more to help you understand and use genealogy software programs, merge files, resolve conflicts, clean up old files, identify potential issues, and document sources and repositories.

Examples from all major programs will be presented, so you can find the best software for your own use and see how others have resolved similar problems.
