How Computers & Gadgets are Changing Genealogy - free webinar by Barbara Renick now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by Barbara Renick, "How Computers & Gadgets are Changing Genealogy" is now online to view for free for a limited time. It was a fun trip down computer memory lane. A few comments from our viewers:
  • I always learn new things in these webinars. This was a journey down memory lane as I have been using computers since 1981. I'm fascinated with all that we can do now in the digital age. I went to college before there were photocopy machines! All notes had to be handwritten. Now I learn that the schools aren't teaching cursive writing anymore...we better transcribe as many early records as we can or our descendents won't be able to read them.
  • It was an interesting review of how much this great endeavor has changed over time. will no doubt tie up the rest of my afternoon!
  • Really appreciate seeing how had to do genealogy before the gadgets made it easier. Those ones where pioneers. I've only been doing this a few years.
