Good news! The National Institute for Genealogical Studies will once again be offering a free genealogy course to anyone who registers for the OGS Conference 2013. You’ll receive an information sheet in your registration package.
Here’s a description of the course:
Connecting Family: Online and Virtually
Computers and the Internet have revolutionized the way families communicate. This course will highlight a few specific ways to use your computer and the Internet to build and strengthen family ties. Topics will include using multimedia techniques to preserve and share family photographs, build an online family tree, creating virtual family history tours/videos, creating online family newsletters, digitizing scrapbooks, publishing an online family history and creating and maintaining family websites, using communication tools such as Skype or FaceTime, and using social media (blogs, Facebook, and Twitter) to find long lost cousins, and stay in touch with relatives.
