September 21, 2013 10 am—Walker Meeting Room 1st floor of Fayetteville Public Library
For our September Genealogy Workshop, we are going to discuss genealogy software! There are many genealogy software programs available and our members have used most of them. Come and share your genealogy software experiences! If you are new to genealogy, this is a great time to find out what others like and dislike about the genealogy programs they use and pick up a few tips on how to use the genealogy software to get the results you want from it.
November 16, 2013 10 am—Walker Meeting Room 1st floor of Fayetteville Public Library
The November Genealogy Workshop will focus on preserving our photos and documents. Come and bring your preservation questions and members will share preservation tips. Also, we will discuss scrapbooking with genealogy photos! Bring a few copies of your genealogy photos and try out scrapbooking if you haven’t before.
Note: Please bring copies of your genealogy photos if you want to try out many of the scrapbooking tools! Don’t use a one-of-kind genealogy photo for scrapbooking! You might find that you accidentally cut out some of the important information from the photo later. We will discuss how to share and preserve the original photos as well as the traditional scrapbooking methods!
Scrapbooking is a good way to get the younger people interested in genealogy. Young kids will enjoy looking at your scrapbooks and finding out who all the people are even if they aren’t interested in long discussions about why you can’t find great-grandpa in the census!
Come and join us for the workshops and share your family history!
