April 2008 meeting

Reunion 9

Congratulations to Joe Byers as the winner of the iPod shuffle – generously donated by David Smith of Capitol Macintosh.

Join us this week as LAMALUG members Dottie Stark and Ron Blanchard will present Reunion, a genealogy software program.

Reunion received the highest rating for genealogy software in MacWorld, MacAddict, and Mac Home Journal magazines.

Reunion helps you to document, store, and display information about your family — your ancestors, descendants, cousins, etc. It records names, dates, places, facts, plenty of notes, sources of information, pictures, sounds, and videos. It shows family relationships in an elegant, graphic form — people and families are linked in an easy-to-understand fashion.

Reunion makes it easy to publish your family tree information — even if you want to share it on the Web. You can automatically create common genealogy reports, charts, and forms, as well as birthday calendars, mailing lists, questionnaires, indexes, and other lists. Reunion even calculates relationships, ages, life expectancies, and statistics.

Reunion also creates large, high-resolution, graphic charts allowing complete on-screen editing of boxes, lines, fonts, and colors. Wall charts are one of its specialties. For more information, visit the Reunion web site.
