Society Saturday – The July 24 Reunion SIG Meeting

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Richard Hanson.

The Reunion SIG, a special interest group sponsored by the Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society, addressed several topics at its most recent meeting on July 24. The first few minutes were spent on comparing the sourcing mechanisms of Reunion and RootsMagic. The overview diagram follows.

RootsMagic's sourcing facility was profiled in detail at the prior (July 17) Root Cellar workshop meeting. Future workshop meetings will address Legacy (August 21), Family Tree Maker (September 18) and Reunion (October 16).
For more information on the workshop meetings:

During the remainder of the Reunion SiG meeting, topics and questions from attendees were addressed. One such question was how to sync Reunion data between an iMac (desktop computer) and an iPad (tablet computer). I ran my presentation on that topic. Basically, you connect both devices to the same wi-fi network and use built-in menu options to initiate data transfer.

The next Reunion SIG meeting is scheduled for August 28.
