General Meeting:

Webinar presented by Thomas McEntee


“Managing the Genealogy Data Monster”

It is so easy to let the large amounts of data involved with genealogy overwhelm you — to the point that family history research is no longer fun! Learn how to tackle the three main problem areas of genealogy data: research data, project data and file data, so you can put the FUN back in your research! 

The basics of working “smarter” instead of “harder” when it comes to managing genealogy data willbe covered.  Topics include setting up genealogy projects and tracking them to completion, using a research log to track research, and how to better manage your data files.  (Attendees will receive free data management templates for genealogy projects, and a genealogy research log.)

Thomas McEntee is creator of Geneabloggers, and  owner of HiDef Genealogy and Hack Genealogy.


About our Meetings:

The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.

We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.

Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
