Help - introduction

Help content
 Intro  It was some years ago that a user of this site pointed out how useful he found a particular facility.   I didn't even know of this feature!   Then I realised that the software has so many features that you could easily miss them, and that a Help facility would be useful.   So these help pages have been built in the hope that it will help you more quickly learn how to use the system.

The help pages are separate from the genealogy pages, so that you can use them in one tab in your browser and refer back to them in another.

All the images used in the following instructions are from this web site.   However, just be aware that:
♦   Most images were copied some time ago, and the colours on the live site have changed.
♦   The sequence of links in the MAIN MENU has changed since these help images were created.

N.B.  All links on these help pages are in underlined BLUE - except for the FAQ links on this page.
