Digital Genealogy / Family Genes Special Interest Group

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

Impressions of the FamilyRoots Conference

We will start the meeting with a roundtable discussion on the recent conference held by the AFHS.  Did you pick up any tips to increase your to-do list?  Quality and value of the presentations.  The facility, and so on.

Scanning of slides 

I am testing out a new software application to aid in the digitizing of slides.  Requires a smart phone with camera.  My first attempt was very successful, so I hope to have a live demo session for you.  The application is Photmyne and the website is https://photomyne.com.

Family Genes

There have been so many improvements to the Family Genes website that this will take up the balance of the meeting.  Roy and I look forward to the unveiling of the new website, and you have premium seating for the event.

This Special Interest Group has two areas of focus: 1) All things digital that can be used for genealogy research 2) The Family Genes service offered by our Society.

This meeting will be held via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent to those on the SIG distribution list a few days prior via email by Jim who is the group leader.

We welcome visitors! If you would like to attend as a guest, please email webmaster@afhs.ab.ca
