Managing the Genealogy Data Monster
 
Saturday, November 13, 2021 - 10:30 AM - Noon PM CST
Instructor: Thomas MacEntee
$15 for IGSI members; $20 for non-members
 
It is so easy to let the large amounts of data involved with genealogy overwhelm you - to the point that family history research is no longer fun! Learn how to tackle the three main problem areas of genealogy data: research data, project data and file data so you can put the fun back in your research!
 
Attendees will learn the basics of working "smarter" instead of "harder" when it comes to managing genealogy data. We'll cover setting up genealogy projects and tracking them to completion, using a research log to track research, and how to better manage your genealogy data files.
 
All you need to attend is an internet-connected device with audio capabilities (computer, iPad, smartphone, etc.)
