     PZ Horton III will present a basic overview for beginning users of Family Tree Maker via an online webinar.  PZ is currently the Facilitator for the Family Tree Maker Special Interest Group for the Tennessee Genealogical Society.   Family Tree Maker is the most popular genealogical software package for Windows and Mac that allows the family historian to keep track of information collected during research and to create reports, charts, and books containing that information.

     Note:  This presentation was originally scheduled for September but due to a major power failure taking out our telephone & Internet service, we were unable to have the program.  Mr. Horton has graciously agreed to make the presentation for our November meeting.

     Mr. Horton is an amateur genealogist with a special interest in technology.  He has been working on his and his wife’s family genealogies for over 35 years and has worked with computers for over 53 years.  He has traveled to societies, libraries, courthouses and cemeteries in 24 states.  He supports over 25 genealogical or historical society organizations and was Technical Advisor to the Board of the Tennessee Genealogical Society.  He has taught genealogy technology classes on Family Tree Maker, Ancestry, RootsMagic, MyHeritage, and Family Search.

     PZ is a retired USAF LtCol and is a member of the Air Force Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Vietnam Veterans, Military Order of World Wars and Military Officers Association of America.
