Upcoming June webinars - Digital Images, Staying Safe w/Social Media, and Newspapers
June 18, 2012
We've got a terrific lineup of webinar topics for you to conclude our June schedule. From your own computer you will learn from genealogy's experts about digitizing and editing your photos, staying safe with social media (Facebook, Google+), and finding marriages and anniversaries in newspapers. Best of all - every webinar is free to you.
Sign up for one or all of them today and we will remind you via email both one day and one hour before the live event. Because of the popularity of these topics, plan to arrive at least 20-30 minutes early. Remember, only the first 1,000 to join on the day of the live event will get in. Also, ensure that your Java is updated at www.Java.com as our webinars utilize this technology. Hope to see you online!

Newspapers are packed with information celebrating the engagements, marriages and anniversaries. They also reported on the heartbreak of those marriages that ended in divorce. Learn what you can discover about your family. Wednesday, June 20.
Staying Safe with Social Media by Thomas MacEntee. Are you hesitant to use popular social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter or even Pinterest and share your genealogy research because of issues involving personal information and privacy? Learn how to safely navigate these sites and still get the most out of them! Special time - Friday, June 22.
Digital Images for Genealogists and Technologists: scanning, digitizing, editing, and preserving your photos by Geoff Rasmussen.

Geoff: Will the Digital Images for Genealogists and Technologists be available in the archive? I will be at work during the webinar but would like to see it.

Linda - yes, if all goes as planned, the recording should be in the archives at www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/webinars.asp shortly after the live show ends, and will be available for about 10 days for free there.
