The group was officially recognised by the Society as a Special Interest Group after their inaugural meeting held on 22 September 2013. 

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:


April - Legacy and Websites - using the inbuilt Internet Searches and creating your own.

March - Making the most of Chronology View, including Historical Timelines.

February - File Maintenance and List Clean-up with focus on Location list.

JanuaryLet us start the new year by asking Cathy questions about areas of the Legacy program which you are having problems with.
