SKCGS General Meeting (virtual)

Thomas McEntee presents “You Can Do This, Photo Organizing Preservation”


MACENTEE Thomas 20200901 Chicago.jpg


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? As more and more Baby Boomers take on the task of organizing family history materials, we’re uncertain about the best way to preserve these memories. And an over-abundance of technology doesn’t help! Participants will 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!

We can see the end of summer vacation approaching. SKCGS has been busy planning for the upcoming year and preparing for the return of Genetic Genealogy SIG and the Technology User Group. 

We would like to change the group formerly called Persons of Interest, to instead focus on Collaboration. This can include persons of interest with whom you would welcome help, our research projects such as the Black Heritage of Franklin, https://skcgs.groups.io/g/Black-Heritage-Franklin, or other collaborative projects. Share your thoughts with us: President@skcgs.org

If you’d like to attend our next virtual Genealogy Chat this month, on the 23rd at 1 pm Pacific Time, please bring projects you have been working on, problems you are experiencing, breakthroughs, and cool things you have encountered. Every chat is different and they have all been interesting and fun! Watch for invitations and reminders on https://skcgs.groups.io/g/Society. You will notice that we are now transitioning to Zoom rather than Google Meet for video conferencing. We are sorry to make a change, but Zoom offers some features we need. 

If you are interested in a monthly study group of Mastering Genealogical Proof by Thomas Jones, be sure to join https://skcgs.groups.io/g/Study-Group. Be warned: this is intense!
