    Thank you! I wish I would have know this when I first started entering my family into Legacy 9. This would have saved me hours of work.

    I wish I had seen this video years ago when I first started using Legacy.

    I would like to set next to Geoff with my Legacy Family Tree open and walk through each of these steps!! I learned how to enter the census in an easier format along with linking it completely to all parties! Thank you.

    Interesting and informative. Geoff explains everything clearly and is easy to understand. I learned that I have to be very, very careful entering information 🙂 Thanks very much!

    I’ve added so many census events over the years, and I was amazed at how much I learned in this webinar. Thanks Geoff

    Learned LOTS…….now LOTS of records to upgrade! Thank you sooooo much!! Really!!!

    Lots of new and interesting information. Thanks, Geoff!

    Lots of new information. Love the info re Excel and filling out the pdf forms. Thank you so much!

    Love Geoff’s webinars. He teaches things in an easy to understand way and in full details so you can follow along yourself. Also fun as he learns things or gets sidetracked, just like we do when we are adding stuff into Legacy ourselves. Can’t wait for the next Geoff webinar, too bad it’s not for a few months.

    LOVE these Webinars !! They are SUPER !!!

    loved it! He makes it all so much easier to understand.

    OMG, there was a lot of information and suggested formats that I will be incorporating into my use of Legacy immediately. Thanks Geoff

    Outstanding and informative, once again. Attendee’s suggestion regarding using Acrobat pdf to transcribe census data was outstanding– so obvious, yet so easily overlooked as a great tool!

    Outstanding! Now to start entering the tons of census records I have collected over the years.

    Perfect timing. Next project on my To Do List is review my Irish genealogy and fix all the sources so I have it ready for my neice’s trip to Ireland in June!!!!

    Picked up numerous tips.

    So much to learn…so much to do…Love my Legacy software; glad I switched from Roots Magic.

    So Amazing! You do a great job explaining how to do this!

    SO helpful! Thank you!

    Sooo, helpful! More short cuts too for data entry!

    Thank you for the detailed telling of how you do your program. I’m starting over from scratch with the Legacy 9 and loving it. I’ve not had the chance to do any Legacy program entering for over a year and Geoff makes the comeback easier than I thought it would be. Excellent !!!

    Thank you Jeoff – I only wish I’d seen this all those years ago before I added all those tens of thousands of census records!!! No time like the present to begin doing it the right way! Your presentations are clear and enjoyable to listen to, thanks again!

    Thank you so much.. Learned lots of new things !!

    Thank you! Lots of good examples!

    Thanks for all of the tips for using Legacy

    Thanks Geoff for all of the great information! Congratulations on raising a successful child. 🙂 Please do a webinar or answer next webinar on searching for Legacy FANS (not added as a person but only attached thru a doc- is that possible) & searching the ‘to do’ list. Love your knowledge of Legacy and computers. Thanks so much!

    Thanx, Geoff! Your knowledge of Legacy is astounding and your presentation is so easy and fun to follow. Love your webinars!

    The short cuts on source data replication was outstanding. Not only does it save valuable time…it eliminates errors when entering the same information for multiple individuals.

    The shortcut hints were as useful as the main subject–Thanks!

    The Watch Geoff Live webinars are among the best!

    This was AMAZING!!!!! Thanks so much, Geoff!!!!!

    This webinar was so helpful. Great job.

    Trying to learn Legacy Family Tree software. Today it is beginning to click

    valuable info, really good presentation. Geoff is easy to listen to. Love these LIVE classes on legacy.

    Very helpful info – and as always lots of bonus thoughts, directions and ideas as well!

    Watch Geoff Live webinars are the most helpful webinars with Legacy Family Tree how-to’s! Thank you!

    Watching Geoff Live is a wonderful way to learn how to use Legacy. He needn’t be nervous, as he sometimes says; he’s the master teacher, fun and personal and knowledgeable.

    Wow, I’ve been using Legacy for years and I guess I’ve only touched the surface so to speak. Thanks
