Connecting Family: Online or Virtually
This course highlights specific ways to use your computer and the Internet to build and strengthen family ties. Topics include using multimedia techniques to preserve and share family photographs, build an online family tree, creating virtual family history tours/videos, creating online family newsletters, digitizing scrapbooks, publishing an online family history and creating and maintaining family websites, using communication tools such as Skype, and using social media (blogs, Facebook, and Twitter) to find long lost cousins, and stay in touch with relatives.
This introductory course answers the questions: "Why trace our ancestors?", "How far back can I go?" and "How do I proceed after I've talked to my family?" The course looks at the mementoes and documents found in our own homes which hold so much information but which are often overlooked. This is followed with a general review of the public sources available. The course concludes with a look at the frustrating and confusing situations you may encounter as you undertake your research.
