Wednesday - How Computers & Gadgets are Changing Genealogy by Barbara Renick
Presenter-9417Things have changed radically in the genealogy community since the typewriter era. Some problems have been overcome, others have worsened. Meanwhile prognosticators predict technology users face three C’s in the future: greater Convergence, Convenience, and Connectivity which are already impacting how we do genealogy today and have even greater consequences for the future.
Friday - Home for the Holidays - Tips for Collecting Family History by Gordon Nuttall and Lisa Milner
ComboGet the family photos out of shoe boxes or from the back of the closet…it is a perfect time for grandparents to get the next generation involved. Start your children or grandchildren on a lifelong journey by telling your story and introducing them to family history. And don't forget you can easily add Aunt Betty’s recipes to the family cookbook. Students love these when they go off to college and they also make great wedding gifts. You will learn how to recognize and capture those great pieces from family history.
