Our next class will be on April 1 2012. We will be discussing the following books: "The Genealogist's Google Toolbox" by Lisa Louise Cooke and "Google Your Family Tree, Unlock the Hidden Power of Google" by Daniel M Lynch.
I have been flippin' through these books and learning all kinds of tricks to help narrow down my genealogy searches and I am going to share the tricks with you. Some of the other things we will talk about are: Google Alerts, creating a genealogy research dashboard, google books, google news timeline, google translation and more!
May's class will be on Google Earth! The things we learn in April, should help us create a google map of our ancestors.
In other news:
1.Please give out some business cards to people you meet that may be interested in our group.
2.Are there any classes you would like to lead? Does any one want to do a class on Native American research? I don't know anything about it, do any of you? Does any one want to lead a class on over seas research. Any other ideas?
3. I was thinking, for future class announcements, that I would simply post here and send an email to remind you to check the blog. How do you feel about that?
4. By the way, the complete list of Rosemary's books that are available for us to use is at the very bottom of this blog.
