About this webinar

In this series, Legacy’s Geoff Rasmussen will guide you through the step-by-steps of properly adding genealogy documents, citations, and digital media to your Legacy Family Tree 9 software. Each class is based on a different chapter in his popular book, Legacy 9 Unlocked: Techniques, Tips and Step-By-Steps for Using Legacy Family Tree to Record Your Genealogy. Watch them in order if you want to  follow the mystery or jump around to capture the instructions.
In this class, “Your First Few Legacy Tips,” you will learn about the Forms Center (helpful for enlarging those hard-to-read census record headings), the Chronology View (Legacy’s most powerful tool), and how to record and print alternate names.

    Always appreciate Geoff’s live demonstrations using Legacy. I need all the help I can get! Thank you! 🙂

    Always Geoff is number 1 with me!!

    Always good to learn more about software capabilities. Easy to follow and entertaining

    Always great!! Geoff is so clear and fun to watch – one learns a lot with some excitement added in!! I learned several totally-new to me tips and ideas on sources, forms, media, and more. Cheers!!

    Always learn something with Geoff Live webinars. I found mistakes in my citations last night and this a good lesson.

    Another awesome session.

    As always, FUN & super informative! Thanks a bunch!!

    As always, working with real data in real time is so informative!


    Can I rate you higher than 5? GREAT webinar with lots of great hints, and I have been using Legacy a long time. But learned more great things today. Thanks Geoff for all you do! I love Legacy.

    Can’t go wrong with Geoff presenting.

    Enjoyed the verbal and visual tips that were given making the written word easier to understand. I am looking forward to re-playing this several times this weekend.

    Even though I have used Legacy for years, I thoroughly enjoy watching these “Watch Geoff Live” style webinars to learn even more tips and tricks for Legacy. Thank you!

    Even though I joined late, I am very impressed with Legacy 9. I haven’t used it yet because it intimidated me, but after watching this webinar, I’m not so concerned.

    Everything was demonstrated and explained very clearly, lots of useful tips and ideas for getting the most out of the software.

    Excellent !!!!!!!!!!!

    Excellent as always. My favorite presenter!

    Excellent Webinar. . . I’m looking forward to the following webinars in this series. I’ve purchased the PDF to follow along. Thank you for all your help.

    Excellent, informative presentation. Geoff is a very encouraging teacher!

    Fabulous! Learned a lot of new things to try with my data!

    Fantastic webinar, gives power to using the new Legacy 9 software in a more constructive way.

    Fantastic–Can’t wait for the rest of the series on Legacy Unlocked. I’ve been using Legacy Unlocked from the beginning of Version 9, and every time I listen to a new watch Geoff live, I learn about all those little hidden tips. Keep em’ coming.

    Geoff is a great instructor – what an awesome session. Looking forward to Watch Geoff Live Part 2! =)

    Geoff just tied with Thomas MacEntee for best Webinar of 2018.

    Goeff’s passion for Legacy is fabulous.

    Great examples of ‘tips and tricks’ to using features I would have missed.

    great job! the instructor kept it 100. he is refreshing, upbeat, and energetic. thank u.

    Great job, as always. I haven’t used Legacy yet, so I admit to being a little lost at times, but since I am a subscriber (hurrah, what a great bargain) I can watch again and again. Thank you for providing such a great introduction to Legacy.

    Great job, Rass!

    Great review! Renewed inspiration to use Legacy to its full potential.

    Great tips for both begginners and advanced users

    Great tips! I’ve used Legacy Deluxe for years and still learned a lot!

    Great webinar, learned a lot and look forward to the other webinars in this series. Love to see how Legacy is used and how to use it. More of this kind of webinars are kindly appreciated 🙂

    GREAT! Thanks for the wonderful tips!

    Great! Even though I have the book,it was really helpful to watch Geoff live. Looking forward to future installments,and meanwhile re-reading and practicing!

    Great! Learned even more, always good to see a video besides using a book. Thanks 🙂

    I always enjoy Geoff’s webinars because he is so good about showing special tips as he goes along. Something like the split screen on the index view may not be something you would think to look for, but once you know about it – you use it all the time. Love these webinars!!!

    I love these webinars! They are so helpful!!!!

    I love watching Geoff work in Legacy – very helpful to see how he actually works with the various screens and inputs data. Keep them coming!!

    I truly appreciate the hands-on webinars hosted by Geoff. Happy New Year 2018!

    If the rest of the year’s webinars continue as great as the first two, I will be “happy dancing” continually!!

    I’m not a Legacy user … yet. I am amazed at the power of this software and plan to switch from Reunion. Geoff is an awesome presenter! Thank you.

    I’m SO GLAD you’re doing these Legacy-based webinars. There is SO MUCH I DON’T USE because I’m AFRAID I’ll mess up my data. I’ve owned Legacy 9 since it was released…but haven’t upgraded from Legacy 8…because I’m AFRAID! Obviously, I need these webinars!!! I do own the book. I’m taking notes! Thanks, Geoff, for all your work!

    Interesting. I love learning new things and new programs. The new tips make remembering things much easier, and each webinar I take helps to reinforce what I have learned. Thank you, I might just get this.

      After ten years with Legacy, I am still learning new things about it. Just recently I had caught up with entering data and as a new project for myself, I decided to see what needed merging and found I had over 50 possible duplicates, so I began working on that. Legacy is a fantastic app. I tell others who are doing some genealogical work/fun about it all the time.
