    Reunion for MAC User Group


    Thinking Outside the Box with Reunion

    Speaker: Anne Alves

    Genealogy often requires you to think outside the box.  Reunion is the BEST genealogy software for Mac users, but sometimes I want it to do something it wasn’t designed to do.  In this session we will Explore “workarounds” for Reunion.  Is there something you would add to LeisterPro’s “wish list” for Reunion?  Let’s talk about it, and see if we can make it work until they realize it’s a GREAT idea!

    This meeting will be a Virtual only meeting via Zoom. 

    Registration will open on January 18, 2021.
