Upcoming Events
April 11th:
File Organization
Information gathered from a multitude of sources--paper from library research trips, letters, emails, family stories, documents, photos, Internet downloads, images from digital cameras, and images scanned to computer--is most useful and easily found again when it’s organized in an orderly and logical way. This class will demonstrate various ways to organize a collection, reduce piles of paper, and put information in a format that can be used as a foundation for a family history book or CD/DVD.
