Have you heard about our Annual Seminar happening next month?
Well, for our 12th Annual Seminar - and the year of our 50th Anniversary celebration - we decided to do something really special. We invited nationally known speaker, author, pod-caster, and Genealogy Gems owner Lisa Louise Cooke to present, what we hope will be, four informative sessions to jump start your enthusiasm, enhance your skills, and make your research time more productive. The four sessions are:
How the Genealogist Can Remember Everything with Evernote: Evernote puts all your notes right at your fingertips no matter where you are. In addition to super fast and easy note taking and retrieval, you'll learn how to clip items from the Internet (rather than saving entire bulky web pages!) use OCR technology to search our digitized documents like newspaper article, and tap into a myriad of apps that help Evernote help you do just about anything you need. Evernote harnesses the power of the Cloud to allow you to work across all of your computing devices (including your iPad and smart phone.) Best of all, it's free.
Google Search Strategies for Common Surnames: Discover tips and tricks to find your ancestors with common surnames and surnames that double as common words in the English language with Google. Learn how to weed out irrelevant search results to save time and get to what you want faster. Then save and automate your searches to run for you! You'll not only improve your searches, but also improve your chances that the information you post online will be found by other gnealogists facilitating collaboration!
How To Reopen and Work in a Genealogical Cold Case: Become a genealogical detective in this vital session. You'll learn to track ancestors like a criminal cold case detective, sniffing out holes in your research and getting missing information on the record with cutting edge technology.
Get the Scoop on Your Ancestors with Newspapers: Yearning to "read all about it?" Newspapers are a fantastic source of research leads, information, and historical context for your family history. Learn the specialized approach that is required to achieve success in locating the news on your ancestors. Includes 3 Cool Tech Tools that will get you started.
