The FHWA Legacy User Group is open to all FHWA 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 FHWA 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 was 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 Topics for 2020

February - we explored how to download GEDCOM files from an online family tree and import into Legacy.  Also how to use split screen view in Legacy to compare files.

April - how to successfully enter sources to your family tree by using SourceWriter templates in Legacy.  Bring your Sourcing questions.

May - Using Legacy Master Lists.

June - Useful customisations in Legacy - things you may not know or forgotten how to do.
