Add to Calendar 2021-04-13 19:00:00 2021-04-13 20:30:00 America/Chicago Join Live: Organizing & Preserving Genealogical Photos Online

Our next online Zoom Genealogy Program will take place on Tuesday evening, April 13, 2021, from 7 - 8:30 pm.  Our program for the evening is titled "You Can Do This: Photo Organizing and Preservation for Your Genealogical Photos".  The presenter of the program is Thomas MacEntee.

Are you sitting on a pile of old family photographs and wondering what is the best way to preserve them? What about boxes of family vacation slides, photo negatives or home movies? The task of organizing family history materials is a big undertaking, and an over-abundance of technology doesn’t always help! Join guest presenter Thomas MacEntee to learn the best ways to organize and preserve family photos including outsourcing as well as the DIY approach. Starting with quick and easy inventory and organizing tips, we’ll move on to creating a strategic plan to finally get this photo project done!

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who is also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas has over 42 years of experience researching family history. After a 25-year career in the information technology field, he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at GenealogyBargains.com!
