This spring, the Sumner County Historical & Genealogical Society will be offering classes taught by professional genealogist and former Information Technology professional, Gene Davies, Caldwell.
Starting with “Beginning Genealogy” Davies will instruct classes in Beginning Genealogy, how to use family tree software, and using Evernote for genealogy and to store photographs, organize files and back up your hard drive.
It’s not necessary to have your own laptop, but if you do, bring it and enjoy the hands-on Beginning Genealogy class. Davies will show you how to find and use primary and secondary sources, research on-line at free and subscription websites, share with you how to use DNA to break down brick walls and learn your ancestral origins, as well as give you valuable tips on organizing the information you locate and entering the information into a family tree program.
Times, dates, and Wellington location to be announced after determining time constraints of participants, but there may be both day and night sessions offered.
Cost for each four hour training session will be $10 for SCHGS members and $20 for non-members. (Joining the society saves $$$ on future classes!)
For more information, stop by the Sumner County Historical & Genealogical Society History Center at 208 N. Washington in Wellington, Kansas on Tuesday from 10 am to 4 pm (closed through the lunch hour) or contact Gene Davies at 316-371-3157, or online at www.daviesonline.me.
