Tech Class: Genealogy on the Move, There's an App for That!

Ridgewood Public Library Tech Room
Monday, 2 March, 7pm
Instructor: Barbara Ellman

The changes in computing and in genealogical research provide us with opportunities to explore. We can rethink what we carry with us and how we store our information. This session will help you discover the obvious app companions such as those that allow you to carry your family tree and its information with you. We will also look at a number of tools that are available for your mobile excursions and can be adapted for your genealogical research and family connections.

Registration and small fee required: $5 Ridgewood residents and GSBC members; $10 for visitors.
