We missed many at the TUG meeting yesterday.
Our program was altered: Jim gave a talk on Filters
and we used that as a basis for an extended hands on workshop.
The talk provided an excellent basis for learning how to
formulate questions of the data base and for finding the
appropriate heading in the database. We also learned how
to transfer the 59 special, useful queries in the SAMPLES project
to our projects.
Linda Reinfeld showed examples of charts she has made with
TMG that included ancestor and descendants charts, hourglass
charts that can be done on standard 8 1/2 by 11 paper and put
together for reunions and special occasion. The charts featured
thumbnail pictures. She also showed examples of other charts
and a booklet prepared for a descendant's birthday. This was
motivational and led to a desire to have a session on exhibits.
Our next meeting will be Saturday, July 19th. We hope to see you
and your Databases at that time.
