Sunday, September 11, 2016

     The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will meet at Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services, 14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida on Sunday September 11, 2016 for a presentation by Clint Elbow on  “Use of Computers in Genealogical Research”.  A social with refreshments and library access begins at 1:30 PM, and the featured program starts at 2:00 PM.

     This program will focus on some of the fundamental elements of using computers and search engines for genealogical research. Genealogy software use is widespread and continually improving which offers researchers a significant number of tools to support their activities. But researchers still need to work outside of these software programs to find and manage data in many formats. In this program we will take a look at some helpful parts of this process and pull back the covers on a few common tasks that we encounter while conducting our genealogical research.

Clint Elbow served two terms as President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay after being involved with the group for several years prior.  Clint works in the Information Technology industry in the Tampa Bay area with a focus on business analysis and project management, and he has been conducting his own genealogical research for a number of years.  He has been able to apply his professional IT experience to his genealogical research, and he will share some of his experiences using computers during this presentation.
