The Computers in Genealogy SIG is a group where members can share their particular skills and knowledge of computer hardware and software related to their uses in genealogy. Family tree-building programs like RootsMagic, Legacy Family Tree, Family Tree Maker, Family Tree Builder, etc. are not the only programs useful in genealogy. DNA-related programs and websites; AI (Artificial Intelligence) apps and your experiences with any of them; spreadsheet programs; word processing and page layout programs; scanning and digitizing hardware and software; image editing and retouching software; folder and file naming and sorting/organizing software; maps and mapping software; metadata programs such as Adobe Bridge; text transcription and dictation software; and more are all open for discussion at upcoming meetings.
Introducing the new Computers in Genealogy SIG Leader, Art!
Welcome to the Computers in Genealogy SIG. As the new leader, I have some topic ideas in mind for future meetings, but your input is requested. Please let us know if you have a related topic you’d like to share with the group or if there’s something you’d like to know more about. I aim to encourage active participation by SIG members so you can learn at least one new item at each meeting.
Kurt will handle the March meeting, and I’ll suggest several reasons for digitizing photos, albums, and other documents in your possession at the April meeting.
We’ll resume in September with some highlights from RootsTech, but topics for October and November are to be determined.
We meet on the 3rd Thursday of March, April, September, October and November at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.
Upcoming presentations include:
March: Digitization Project and the EPL with Kurt Paterson
April: Why Digitize Photos and Documents? 25 reasons + 1 Bonus to Digitize Photos and Documents with Art Taylor
Hi Les, great presentation tonight. I really learned a lot. I had forgotten we could use MyHeritage Library Edition at home and had just this week started using MyHeritage on a free trial and had some luck with it. I will use your information and stick with the free version now. - Diane W.
