Write as You Go

22 - 22 March 2022 FhGS class "Making Sense of the Shambles: Organizational Tools for Genealogy" Golden, Colorado
Details:

Family historians tend to be “Keepers of Everything,” from treasured original family documents and photographs to printed copies found online and at repositories. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and disorganized. When you reach the point that you’d rather print new copies of records than hunt your old copies, you know you’ve arrived at critical mass --- and it’s time to take action! Learn about software tools for organization, computer filing techniques, “hard copy” options, and archival storage solutions.

Presenter Alice Hoyt Veen, Certified Genealogist, is a professional researcher, and genealogical educator. She believes family history success lies in truly understanding the records our ancestors created. Her presentations reflect this philosophy through real case-study examples and hands-on practice. Alice has spoken at national, regional, and state conferences, and for numerous local organizations. She is a past trustee for the BCG Education Fund, a charitable trust advancing the educational aims of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

Guests are always welcome. Register at https://foothillsgenealogy.org to receive the ZOOM link for this free class at 1:00 p.m. MT. Donations accepted.
