Where should I store my family tree? but mostly about Legacy & My Heritage
Presented by Hazel Boon

Those of us researching our family histories eventually find that we need a way to keep track of all the information we find. This includes pictures, family stories, documents and anything else that will help to tell your family’s story. Please join Hazel as she acquaints you with the pros and cons of using the Legacy computer program and My Heritage, a fairly new online family tree platform. Knowing the pros and cons of these platforms will help you to make the best decision for your needs.

Hazel Boon was born in New York City. She first moved to Toronto in 1970 as a violinist with the Canadian Opera Company. She has been researching her family for more than 15 years and, with Barry Spinner, founded JGSH in 2004 after moving to Hamilton. Hazel has presented for JGS groups in Toronto and Montreal as well as for other community groups.
