Welcome to Pastfinders!
Welcome to the Pastfinders of South Lake County‚Äč Website.
We are located in the Gem of the Hills, Clermont, Florida. The Cooper Memorial Library's Historic Clermont scenes including Citrus TowerGenealogy Room is our base of operation with monthly meetings, genealogy help sessions, computer users’ classes, Beginner Classes, and special events. 
Pastfinders mission is to educate the public on the art and science of preserving family history.  Learning about your roots, where you came from, and the struggles your family made to get you where you are today can open one’s eyes to what kind of pioneers our ancestors were. 
All the classes Pastfinders of South Lake County Genealogical Society conducts are open to the public and most are free to attend. Our meetings are held from September to May; however, during the summer months there are a few scheduled activities and weekly Summer Genealogy Chats at the library. Please see the event calendar on the menu bar for more detail or contact Marlyse at (352) 404-8164 for more information.

Family Tree Maker Tip
How do you handle Titles of the people in your tree?  Reverend or Doctor or Captain for example.  I see a lot of people who make it a part of the name, otherwise no one sees it.  However that is not the proper way.  There are dozens of facts that you can add to the data entry area using the customized view and Title is one of them.  You can then make it show up in the index and other views by clicking on TOOLS, NAMES/DATES/PLACES and under Name index options, check the box: use titles if available.  Reports can also be modified to include the Title in front of the name.
We cover this tip & many more in the Family Tree Maker SIG.
