We attend most of the major genealogy shows during the year. If you know of a show or conference in your area that you think we should attend, please let us know.
We have been giving Legacy presentations to many of the genealogy societies in Washington and Oregon during their monthly meetings. As we travel to different parts of the country we would love to meet with other groups and demonstrate Legacy. Demonstrations usually take between one and two hours, which gives us time to cover many of Legacy's great features and some time to answer questions. Please contact us if you are interested.
There is no way we can visit each and every genealogical society around the world. Because of this, other Legacy users often give demonstrations to their groups instead. If you are interested in doing a Legacy demonstration to your local group, please let us know. We can provide you with a suggested demonstration outline, sample files, brochures and other material to ensure a professional presentation. We also provide materials to people who would like to write a review of Legacy for their group’s newsletters.
During our travels, we enjoy visiting retail stores that carry Legacy (or would like to carry Legacy). If we can work it into our schedule, we would enjoy doing employee training and in-store demos for your customers. Please let us know if you would like us to visit your store.
