Clooz: A Document-Based Software Companion - free webinar by Richard D. Thomas now online

The recording of today's webinar, "Clooz: A Document-Based Software Companion" by Richard D. Thomas is now available to view for a limited time for free at 
Webinar Description
This presentation focuses on using the Clooz software to capture document information of interest, and then after performing the proper analysis of the data, transferring events extracted from that information into Legacy Family Tree. Census and vital document examples will be demonstrated. This approach would provide an alternate way of entering data into Legacy by essentially transcribing document information, and following a workflow in line with the Genealogical Proof Standard.
