Due to the short notice, there is not a topic at this Saturday Short (December 2nd), but I will be in the Genealogy Room to help anyone who wants to show up.

Saturday, December 9th – Building a Tree in Family Search

This Saturday Short is geared towards beginners who are just starting out. Family Search is free so it is a good place to start.

Saturday, December 16th – Scanning

I will bring 2 of my scanners, so bring either a thumb (jump, USB) drive or your laptop, and any pictures, documents, or books (limited to just a few pages) you would like to scan. If you have a scanner you would like to bring, please bring it. The more scanners, the merrier.

Saturday, December 23rd – no meeting

Saturday Short November 18, 2017

The topic is “Snipping Tool and Jump Drives”

Location: SCVGS Lab Saturday, Nov. 18 9:15-Noon

Learn how to use the snipping tool to cut out just what you want to save from documents, pictures, newspaper articles. Then learn how to save images, and documents that you find here in the lab onto a jump (or thumb) drive so you can take it home and add it to your database. Feel free to bring your laptop and a jump drive to class.

Note that with the Tour de Tucson, Rancho Vistoso may be closed to traffic. You probably should come in through the back way by the Activity Center.
