The Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall Conference 2013 is coming on October 25 and 26 in Sandwich, Illinois. I’m happy to say I’ll be there, presenting on Saturday the 26th. Since I was actually born in Sandwich, I’m looking forward to going home and meeting new genealogists at the same time. I’ll be presenting the three following sessions.
1. Managing Your Digital Environment
This session presents simple strategies for 1. organizing digital files on your computer, and 2. using Internet tools to manage your online life. Topics include Using Consistent Data Entry and File Naming; Creating the Six-Folder Digital Filing System; and Apps to Organize Your Online Life.

2. Picture This: Cataloging Family Photographs and Records
This session teaches you how to add names, dates, and other information inside digital photographs. Scanning techniques and how to name, file, and find your digital images also included. Family photographs and documents may seem so complex that they defy organizing, but you can bring order to your digital family records once and for all with the simple and effective steps from this session.

3. Easy as Apple Pie: Using Macs and iPads for Genealogy
This session is filled with links, screenshots, and tips that will help you make the most of your Apple devices.

Mastering the great features and apps for Macs and iPads translates to less time managing your computer(s) and more time spent on research and finding new ancestors.
