Genealogy Classes

Meet at 9am in the classroom upstairs at St Andrews Lutheran Church just prior to our second Saturday meeting.

The classes cover a wide range of topics of interest such as social media, computer genealogy software selection, working with census records, online resources, etc. 

 

AUGUST 11

 

Ancestry.com SIG

Presenter Del Reinhhart


 The objective of this Special Interest Group (SIG) is to discuss various functions and capabilities of Ancestry.com.  The presentations are a combination of Power Point slides and live demonstration of the Ancestry.com program, with an emphasis on the latter.  Since the SIG is held multiple times per year, we attempt to discuss different functions and capabilities at each session.  Those include; but are not limited to the following:

 --New functions and changes

 --Functions that may not be well known by current users; but are very helpful in conducting research.

 --A periodic review of the most useful and popular functions of Ancestry.com.

 --Due to the rapid growth in the use of DNA in genealogy and the importance of Ancestry’s DNA testing and software functions, we usually spend some time in each session discussing the use of Ancestry’s DNA functions.

 --At each session we attempt to leave about 15 minutes at the end of each session for questions and answers.

--We welcome suggestions at each session of topics for future sessions

 

 

Getting Your Photo Chaos Under Control

Jenny Lynn Campbell

 

Got photos? LOTS of them? Everywhere? Smartphones, hard drives, laptops, external hard drvies, flash drives, online retailers, facebook...the list is ENDLESS.
Wouldn't it be great to have them all stored permanently in ONE place and not have to worry about them?

Wouldn't it be great to have them accessible to you, your family and friends and be able to pass down their future generations! And also be able to create fabulous photo projects including photobooks?

Jenny Lynn will give an overview of the tools needed, tips and tricks, and a photo plan for getting your photo chaos under control!
