Genealogy Lecture, Consultation and Book Signing at Bucks County Visitors Center
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Your Love of Family History
(Bucks County, PA) Dan Lynch, author of the critically acclaimed new book Google Your Family Tree, will be presenting “Putting Technology to Work for Family History & Genealogy” a genealogy lecture, consultation and book signing at the Bucks County Visitors Center, 3207 Street Rd., Bensalem, PA on Saturday, February 14th, 2009. The program will run from 10am-4:30pm and is open to the public.
Lynch will discuss how to structure more effective queries to obtain the most relevant results through Google. He will also share proven tips for how to organize files for easy storage and quick access, as well as how and why electronic gadgets such as digital cameras, digital audio recorders, scanners, and GPS devices can add to the effectiveness as a family historian. Dan will also discuss other technology tips specific to genealogy. One-on-one consultations will be available.
When leveraged to its full potential, technology can be of tremendous benefit to every family historian and it’s surprising to learn just how easy it can be to master technology even if you consider yourself "technologically challenged."
