With your updated pedigree charts, research logs and other data organized, you are ready to build a tree directly into a genealogy website. Or consider trying out some free software on your computer to evaluate if it works for you before you pay a subscription. This presentation will present the top five genealogy websites, free software choices to download, GEDCOM files, documenting your research and a brief overview about DNA results which can be attached to your family tree. This summary will help you evaluate how you store and back up your research, again as part of your legacy plan.  It is also an opportunity to post your research and discover others who may be helpful to your family research.
