Reunion Thursday Class!

August 26th Color Tags in Reunion by Susan Rogers

Class will use regular Thursday meeting link

Color Tags!

Color Tags, a relatively new Reunion feature, lets you use colors to "tag" people in your family file. Because they appear in numerous places, color tags serve as visual markers to help you distinguish different attributes or groups of people. Susan Rogers will cover what they are, different ways to use them, and a case study of how she used them to analyze and link DNA matches in one family line to help determine common ancestors.

Join us on Thursday August 26th!
