Genealogy Computing Week Starts--Galesburg, Illinois

We have started our 9th annual Genealogy Computing Week at Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg, Illinois. Today was DeedMapper--how to use it, and how to enter and interpret deeds in metes and bounds.

Upcoming days include:
  • Military Research Online (Tuesday)
  • Preserving, Publishing and Promoting Your Research (Wednesday)
  • Using Genline for Swedish Genealogy Research (Thursday and Friday)
  • Using Ancestry.com (Saturday)

As of today (Monday night) we still have openings. Registration can be done by phone with a credit card by calling 1-877-236-1862 (ext. 5260--Nancy in our registration office). Those who wish to pay by check can pay before the workshop starts in our registration office which opens at 8:00. Workshops start at 9:00. If you call late the afternoon before the workshop, Nancy can tell you if there is still room and you can sign up the morning of the workshop before it starts. Any questions can be sent to me at mneill@sandburg.edu
