General Meeting - Genealogy in the Internet Age

  • Main Classroom Building Rm 136, East 22nd & Chester Ave., Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio
Genealogy is a popular hobby that has been made easier in some ways by computers and the internet. After gathering oral histories and family records, genealogy used to mean field trips to the library, historical society or the governmental vital statistics agency to go through dusty old books and reels of microfilm. The information would then be copied by hand or on a copier. Today with specially designed computer software, the record keeping is much easier and a wide variety of reports and family trees can be produced. The field trips have been replaced by going on the internet and looking up information on a variety of websites.
Ken Bravo, President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland will show us some of the websites that you can use and demonstrate the software that he uses.

Directions to the meeting are available here.
