Genealogy Meeting, 18 April at the Largo Public Library

This is a reminder of the monthly meeting of the Pinellas Genealogy Society on 18 April, 2009 beginning at 11:00 am at the Largo Library, 120 Central Park Drive in Largo, FL.

Our speaker will be Drew Smith, a well-known writer, genealogist and librarian from the University of South Florida. He is co-host of the Genealogy Guys podcast and had been a featured speaker at many statewide and national conferences. He is a specialist in digital technology in genealogy.

The program topic is "Options for Family Websites" where Drew will demonstrate how to create a family website using a blog, a wiki and a genealogy software package (Roots Magic). This will be an interesting program even if you don't know a blog from a wiki.

The program is preceded by an informal Q&A session on "Computers in Genealogy" beginning at 9:45 am.

Light refreshments will be served after the presentation and there will be opportunity to talk with the speaker and PGS members.
