Upcoming Ohana Webinars

The following is from Ohana Software.

Upcoming Webinars

1. Sources and Citations: Just Do It! 

        Presenter: Carol Darrow - president of the Colorado Genealogical Society 
Family history without documentation is mythology. Knowing the source of the information that you 
gather and determining whether the source was an actual participant or someone who wrote about 
the event long afterwards will help you evaluate the reliability of the information you collect. Then 
it’s time to apply our knowledge to evaluate the significance of the information in the document – 
does it answer the question? 

Citing your sources tells your reader where you got your information so they can evaluate
the information for themselves. It will also help you to retrace your steps back to your original document.

  2Preparing Names for the Temple Using FamilyInsight and Ordinance Tracker

This class is aimed for the LDS user who wishes to provide temple ordinances for their
ancestors. We will use FamilyInsight to synchronize a family and review the rules
regarding qualifying a name for temple work. We will reserve the ordinances and use

3.  FamilyInsight for Beginners
        Presenter: Cina Johnson

This class is designed to help new users learn how to use FamilyInsight. We spend time
learning what the program does and how to open your 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 the new FamilySearch. FamilyInsight is a powerful but often underutilized
tool and this class will help you make better use of the program
