  • A quick read to get you started with the software

    Posted by Les DAVIES on 4th Aug 2018

    'Getting Started With Family Historian 6' is a 35-page introduction to using 'Family Historian 6' software. The booklet takes the new user step-by-step through all the function icons on the toolbars in the main window ('Focus Window') and in the 'Property Box', then through the different tabs in each of these two work areas. Descriptions are brief but instructive, reflecting the relative ease of use of this software. One of the few negatives of the booklet is the small size of the print in some of the facsimiles of screen dumps of the program. Despite this, it is a useful guide to getting started with the software and then accessing some of its more advanced features.
