The Genealogy Minute

 
We have the following events coming soon.
Publish a Family History Efficiently: Right Tool for the Right Job
Wednesday October 9 from 10:00 AM to Noon
Last month we explored the elements of planning a do-able project with author and genealogist Dina Carson.  She will return on October 9th to share with us the tools that make writing and publishing a family history easier. Using the wrong tool not only causes frustration but creates unnecessary hurdles and delays. Come explore tools for organizing, collaboration, writing, publishing, image capture, image editing, and the ever-important backup. Throw in a few tools for interactivity, and you will have what you need to create an incredible family history.

Google Earth for Genealogy, Session 1
Genealogy Gems video & workshop
Wednesday October 23 from 10:00 AM to Noon

Have you tried to use Google Earth Pro to enhance your genealogical research or add color to your family story? Has Google Earth Pro left you scratching your head, wondering if you are using it to its full potential, or simply wondering where to even begin? Join us for the first of a two-part series as we move step-by-step through this fabulous resource.

This hands-on workshop requires that participants have Google Earth Pro (FREE) downloaded to their laptop before arriving. Registrants will receive download instructions prior to the first session. If you don't have a laptop to bring with you to the workshop, we will pair you with someone who does.   Learn more...

What Would Nancy Drew Do in the Quest for a Missing Family?
Saturday October 26* from 10:00 AM to Noon
Researching family history is a lot like solving a Nancy Drew mystery. Join us for an overview showcasing examples and techniques that genealogists use every day as found in the original classic series primarily written by Ohio's own Mildred Wirt Benson. We'll explore old and new tools of the trade, library materials, court records, newspapers, gravestones, incorporating community history, and some very nontraditional resources.

* This month's program is the 4th Saturday of the month.
