The interest in the Family Tree Maker (FTM) software is very evident in the genealogical community, thus we are happy to offer a virtual FTM User Group. Whether you are a new FTM user, have been using it for years or are just curious and want to learn more, this user group is for you. This FTM User Group will consist of bi-monthly, drop-in, live-chat style sessions. Sessions include large group discussions; small “break-out” rooms (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced); Q & A periods; live demonstrations; etc. Sessions will alternate day and evening times to accommodate more people and are open to anyone. This user group will be attendee driven so users of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.

Register HERE to be added to the OGS FTM Users Group mailing list

Sessions are recorded and available to all attendees for 60 days then archived on the Ontario Ancestors website HERE for Society members to access after the 60 days.
