Spreadsheets for Genealogy Research  (Education)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
OGS Library, 955 Oak Alley, Eugene, OR
Have an idea for a form? Want to keep track of your information but don’t like any form you have found? Or 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 paper work would be less. But I find that it isn’t always that way. We now must keep track of what we have so we don’t spend time duplicating our research. And this takes time and spread sheets. I have found that I can’t find a spread sheet/form that has what I want so I end up making my own. OR there is a form but it doesn’t quite fit my needs. Or even worse is I want it digital and it isn’t
