Using Microsoft Word to Write Your Family History
Compiling your research into a published work can add years to your family history project. Microsoft® Word can help! In this online seminar, our authors, genealogists, and publishing experts will demonstrate how you can maximize Word’s existing functions to streamline your writing process, saving you time and resulting in a professional and easy-to-reference finished product. NOTE: We will be using Office 365 Microsoft Word version 16 on a PC throughout the session, however, we will provide Mac shortcuts. All the functions we will demonstrate are also available on earlier versions of Microsoft Word.
This course includes one 3-hour online broadcast, exclusive access to a recording of the presentation, handouts and templates, and in-depth Q&A sessions with the instructors. Students will also have access to select introductory videos that discuss common genealogical formats.
