Details:

BCGS Monthly Program via Zoom: "Zotero for Genealogy: Harnessing the Power of Your Research Part 2" will be presented by Donna Cox Baker from 10 am to 12 pm.

Zotero for Genealogy Part II expands on Part I, describing how to creatively use Zotero’s resources to serve your research beyond the essential citation management. In this session, Baker will demonstrate the various ways that she has enhanced her genealogical and historical research, using this tool. You will see how to set up a research tickler system, preparing you to get the most out of any trips to archives and probate offices. You will learn how to track research questions or to-do items, letting Zotero be your reminder of where you left your research and where you need to go from here. Baker will demonstrate how she efficiently handles the extraction of information of sources that mention or involve many different ancestors. She will show how you can turn your research into a timeline. And she will show how she uses Zotero as her legend to her self-made maps of ancestral territories.

08 - 08 February 2023 FhGS Meeting: Denver’s Manhattan Beach Amusement Park Golden, Colorado
Details:

Dr. David Forsyth, historian and author, will present "Denver’s Manhattan Beach Amusement Park".

In 1890, Sloan's Lake had a long history of entertaining Denver residents with boating, fishing, swimming and a steamboat canal when Adam Graff and his partners opened a new park on the shore that would eventually become Manhattan Beach. Originally created as a summer pleasure resort with music, boating, fishing and summer-theater, the park quickly expanded with typical amusement attractions, including Denver's first roller coaster and merry-go-round.

Operating from 1890 to 1914, Manhattan Beach Amusement Park was the first true amusement park in Denver and was enjoyed by residents and visitors for nearly twenty-five years as Denver tried to shake off its image as a dusty cow town from gold mining days and fought to be seen as a sophisticated and well-developed city.     

 David, a Denver native and award-winning historian, has worked in the museum field for several years. He is the author of Images of America: Black Hawk and Central City as well as articles on bars, murders, and bowling alleys that have appeared in Colorado Heritage and International Bowling Industry among other publications. He is Executive Director and Curator of the Gilpin Historical Society.

Guests are welcome for this free presentation on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 1:00 p.m. MT in Applewood Valley United Methodist Church, 2035 Ellis St., Golden, CO. There is ample parking and accessible entrance. Register at http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org for the ZOOM link. Donations welcome and memberships available at http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org.

For 42 years, Foothills Genealogical Society has supported genealogical research with educational programs, classes and field trips and by preserving and publishing historical records from Clear Creek, Gilpin, Jefferson and Park counties.

04 - 04 February 2023 Bucks County Genealogical Society Monthly Program Doylestown, PA
Details:

BCGS Monthly Program via Zoom: "Zotero for Genealogy: Harnessing the Power of Your Research Part 1" will be presented by Donna Cox Baker. 

 This presentation introduces attendees to Zotero, a product used by universities worldwide to support research in many different fields. It stores, organizes, indexes, annotates, and cites information, linking to or attaching sources. It saves substantial time, is available online wherever you have access to Wi-fi, and saves a fortune in wasted paper and time. Zotero is free when used with external sources, very inexpensive if storing your materials in its own cloud.

Applied to genealogy, it becomes the efficient, effective replacement for the binders, files, and boxes of research that support family tree research. It becomes your map to everything you have stored on your computer: documents, maps, photos, sound and video files, spreadsheets – just about any type of digitized file. Its sophisticated search engine makes it easy to find things you do not even remember collecting. It is the essential partner of your family tree software.

This session will demonstrate the fundamental setup and use of Zotero, allowing attendees to get started on their own.
