Spreadsheets for Genealogy Research Part 2  (Education)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
OGS Library, 955 Oak Alley, Eugene, OR
THIS IS A CONTINUATION OF THE JANUARY 12th CLASS.
Have an idea for a genealogy form? Want to keep track of your information but don’t like any of the forms you have found? Or you found a form but you want it digital so you can fill it in and save it so it is easier to update? This is the class for you. I will show you how to make the form that you want or take one and make it fill enable. With all the computer genealogy software out there, you would think our paperwork would be less, but I find it isn’t always that way. We must keep track of what information we already have so we don’t spend time duplicating our research and this takes time and spreadsheets. When I can’t find a spreadsheet or form that has what I want or there is a form but it doesn’t quite fit my needs, I end up making my own. Or, even worse, I want it digital and it isn’t.
 
Instructor:  Linda Aubrey
