The WAGS Legacy User Group (WAGSLUG) is open to all WAGS members, whether users of the Legacy genealogy software program or not.

Members of the public are also able to attend meetings, but are encouraged to become a member of WAGS after having attended 2 meetings of the Legacy User Group.

The group was officially recognised by WAGS as a Special Interest Group on 23 September 2013, after their inaugural meeting held on 22 September 2013. This meeting saw our fledgling group elect a convenor, Diane Foster, who has been the driving force behind the formation of the group.

Format for the meetings will be on the basis of a central theme covering aspects of the Legacy program, but will also provide opportunity for exploration of other questions that members wish to pursue.


Meeting Plans for 2018

 Meetings from January to November will focus on Data Entry for various Data types from starting a new file to adding data with sources and images to a quick look at the Output.

Some of the information will be very basic for beginners but there will be the occasional tips and tricks for more advanced users. 

The second part of each meeting will be devoted to your questions - anything Legacy related.

This has been going well as I continue to add to a new file. However it's taking longer than expected as we explore questions raised, so the original timetable is being stretched. I've removed the future months and left the order.
January: Basic Data Entry: emphasis on Births and Deaths - using Personal Knowledge, Emails, Birth Indexes, Birth Certificates, Online Family Trees 
February: as above
March: Basic Data Entry: emphasis on Baptisms and Marriages - using particularly personally held invitations and Service Sheets and Church Records. 
Data Entry -  the Event/Facts section - emphasis on Census data
Data Entry  - emphasis on other default Event/Facts including Occupation and Residence.
Data Entry - Newspaper articles - both BDM notices and news articles. This will include making your own Event/Facts.
Data Entry - more on adding your own custom events. - some of this session will be Advanced with a look at Editing Event Sentence Definitions.
