Learning Organizational Skills via the Cloud While Utilizing Key British Genealogy Websites Could be the Course for You!

Using the Cloud for British Family History Research with Graham Walter, MCBS

            “A thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience…a real revelation”

               “The lecture was very comprehensive…[Graham’s] breadth of knowledge
               is excellent”
                                                                           Society of Genealogists, London, participant survey

We’ve all heard about the Cloud and Internet services such as:

  • Evernote
  • Dropbox
  • Google Docs
  • Flickr

Now that many of us have more than one computing device, as well as other family members who want us to share our genealogy research, the cloud offers us a way to organize, share, and transfer information with ease.

“The Cloud” is something often referred to but not necessarily always understood. It not only offers us a way to collect the data associated with family history but also to share and collaborate with other people all over the world, in real-time if we want.

Beginning with an introduction to online British record databases, Graham Walter, an IT specialist in England and a well-known genealogist in English circles, will show you how to organize your research for quick accessibility. If you have ever found yourself in a library or archive wishing you had with you your family research notes? To keep your files with you on any research trip, Cloud-based computing knowledge is the key.

This course will demonstrate British genealogy websites:
  • FindmyPast
  • BritishOrigins
  • BritishNewspaperArchives
  • TheGenealogist

useful family history specific apps and services:
  • My Heritage
  • FindMyPast
  • Ancestry
  • FamilySearch

will be highlighted during the course as well as productivity applications such as spreadsheets, word processing and database software in the cloud.

  • Streamline and organize your British research notes
  • Share your finds with family and friends
  • Save your valuable research and photos to the Cloud

For more information and to register before the late registration fee becomes effective on 1 September 2013 (that's this Sunday!)
