New guide to Family Historian: Getting the most from Family Historian 6

Front coverLONDON – April 11th 2016. Calico Pie today announced the publication of ?a new book, Getting the most from?Family Historian 6. The book is a detailed guide to the popular desktop genealogy program, Family?Historian.? Simon Orde, the creator of Family Historian and CEO of Calico Pie, is the book’s author, and spoke about it:? “Family Historian is a very feature-rich program.? Few people use it?to its full potential.? Many people barely scratch the surface of all the features that it offers.? That’s where a book like this can be very helpful.? The idea is that even if you just skim through it, you should be able to easily pick up ideas of things that you can do with?Family Historian that you probably hadn’t even previously realised are possible.? It’s packed with screenshots and illustrations, and there are many great hints and tips, which make the program quicker, easier, and more enjoyable to use. The book is designed to be suitable for both beginners and advanced users.? You can treat it like a reference manual, to dip in and out of, if you want to; but of course you can also read it straight through like a book. It works either way.”

The book builds on earlier versions, but is also a major reworking of those earlier versions.? The goal was not just to bring the book up-to-date, but also to improve it substantially throughout.
