Genealogy Tech Talk, or GenTechTalk for short, is a series of presentations that focus on the impact of technology on the field of family research. Participants will learn about software, websites, databases and other technological tools relating to genealogy. Some of the tools themselves are not genealogical in nature, but can be used by genealogists. A variety of speakers and topics will both educate and inspire.
The series is setup so that participants can attend any number of classes. The classes are generally scheduled on the fourth Thursdays of each month January through October, although an occasional date change is necessary due to library meeting space availability. There are no pre-requisites for any of the classes, but registration is required.
