    Topics of Interest to Reunion for MAC Users

    The primary focus of this workshop is on Reunion for Mac although other genealogy topics of interest are covered.

Often a mixed format is adopted which incorporates a formal presentation, demonstration of the use of Reunion, and a problem solving session where individualized help is provided
