Registration now open for Microsoft Word Workshop

Whether you want to write your family history story for publication in a national magazine, a local genealogy society newsletter, publish a book, or just for yourself, you will need to use a word processing program. Microsoft Word is a popular word processor with powerful and robust capabilities that can help you create beautiful documents.

Pima County Genealogy Society is presenting a Microsoft Word workshop. This workshop will give attendees a solid foundation of the features a genealogist would use most often. Using MS Word 2013, Sherri Hessick will teach participants:
  • Basic document formatting skills
  • How to create and use Styles and Templates
  • How to design and work with tables
  • How to insert and place pictures and text boxes into your document
  • How to add headers and footers
  • How to add endnotes and footnotes
  • How to generate a Table of Contents and Index
  • How to markup and track document changes
All of the features taught at the workshop can be done in earlier versions of MS Word as well as in LibreOffice 5.0.

The workshop will be especially useful for anyone planning to attend the special 2-part Writing workshop or to enter the 2016 Write-On! competition (details to be announced shortly).

The cost for attending the workshop is $10 for PCGS members and $15 for non-members. Advance registration is required and must be received no later than April 16, 2016.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 9:30am to 12 noon at the Banner-University Medical Center.

Visit the Pima County Genealogy Society website for details and to register.
