We will be having a morning and an afternoon session. You do not need to register for both sessions.

 

Register only for the session you wish to attend. There is a discount for those who attend both sessions and St. Charles County Genealogical Society members who attend.

 

Publishing and Preserving from 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon.

 

This presentation will discuss ways to use the Internet effectively to promote your own research and research interests, in an attempt to contact other family members and fellow researchers. The remaining time will be devoted to computer methods of publishing and preserving your genealogical compilations for future generations of researchers. Pros and cons of various digital and print publication methods will be discussed.

 

 

DeedMapper from 1:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

 

Discussed will be data entry, basic transcription of a metes and bounds description, making plats “fit,” and managing larger projects. Those attending this workshop should have a working knowledge of land records and have encountered metes and bounds descriptions in their genealogical research.

 

Michael John Neill is a columnist for Ancestry.com, has led research trips to Ft. Wayne and Salt Lake City, and lectures nationally on a wide variety of genealogy topics.
