Join's host and Legacy Family Tree developer, Geoff Rasmussen, as he presents "Googling with Geoff" to a live audience as part of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society seminar in Whittier, California on Saturday, January 31 at 1:45pm Eastern U.S. time. Geoff will teach about a variety of tools including:
  • Google's Picasa, facial recognition, and syncing with the cloud
  • Using an email that will last
  • Google Alerts
  • Customized Google Searches
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Earth
While waiting for my airplane en route to Los Angeles this morning, I had the idea to share one of the classes I will teach tomorrow (Saturday) with the rest of the world. Fun for the live seminar audience - they'll get to see the behind-the-scenes of hosting a live webinar. Fun for the webinar audience - they'll get to join one of the classes of the annual Whittier Area Genealogical Society seminar from the comfort of their home. Let's just hope the Internet and microphones are working...we'll see...
