Documenting Your Family Heirlooms
Wednesday, April 5
Documenting Your Family Heirlooms
7:00 pm to 8:15 pm
GoToWebinar
 
Description: "Do you know who made that quilt that your mother passed on to you? Are there family photos you received when your grandparents passed? These and other heirlooms are sometimes spread out among multiple family households, which makes it challenging to know much about where these items originated.
We'll discuss techie and non-techie ways to document your family’s heirlooms through apps, websites, and programs you can install on your own computer. By scanning photographs and documents, taking photos of your other items, and documenting the stories associated, we can share those items with our family throughout the world and to generations to come."
 
Presenter: Jennifer Alford is a Professional Engineer by day and a genealogy professional by night. Her business, Jenealogy, creates engaging family history treasures. The highlight of her days is her work as Publisher of The In-Depth Genealogist’s magazine, Going In-Depth.
