The Compare and Sync Mode of FamilyInsight is a life saver for all family historians and the best innovation since sliced bread!  Have you ever updated your file on one computer and forgotten to transfer it to another computer and ended up with two files each containing new but different data? Have you gotten files from other researchers or the Internet but didn't want to add everything to your good file? Compare and Sync is the answer to your needs. We will cover how to use this mode to find the differences between two files and selectively update the main file with information in the secondary file. See how the filters can help you focus your work and much more.

FamilyInsight: For Beginners 

Presenter: Cina Johnson
Ohana Software
Customer Service and Training
This class is designed to help new and returning users learn how to use FamilyInsight. We spend time learning what the program does and how to open your genealogy 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.  

By cleaning up you file, not only will it be a better quality file but you will be better prepared to search for your family in the new FamilySearch using the Simple Update and Full Synchronization mode.  FamilyInsight is a powerful but often underutilized tool and this class will help you make better use of the program.
