Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, January 10, 2012:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Caron Primas Brennan. Caron will present a program titled “Social Networking for Genealogy: Family Trees, FaceBook, Blogs and More”.
Social networking is a collaborative process in which information (comments, photos, news, videos, links) are created and shared. There are many ways to use social networking for genealogy research, whether you want to share your family tree, swap pictures, find new places to look for information or get “how to” tips. Ancestry Family Trees, Facebook groups, shared family web sites, and blogs are all part of the new world of social networking. You do not have to be a computer expert to benefit! Come find out who is looking for you!
Caron loves history, biography, puzzles and a good mystery, which makes her perfectly suited to genealogy research! She has been researching her family history since a 6th grade school project got her interested. She has been using the computer and internet since before it was “cool”. She uses The Master Genealogist as her primary software and also uses Family Tree Maker and Ancestry to share with others in her family. Caron’s only vice is genealogy research so she has subscriptions to many resources including Ancestry.com, Genealogybank.com, NEGHS, Footnote, and Godfrey Memorial Library. She belongs to several local genealogy groups and is the Webmaster and Newsletter Publisher for CAGGNI (www.caggni.org).
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
