What's New and Relevant in Technology for Genealogists? with Dina Carson  
 
High Tech Genealogy: What's New and Cool Out There?
DNA is one of the latest and greatest tools in the genealogist's toolbox, and there are new tools coming along all the time. Traveling for genealogical research offers opportunities for learning what you could not learn any other way, but did you know that there are new tools that help you record and share what you've learned easily? There are also some new and cool tools to keep your research backed up, and if you're drowning in a sea of photographs that need to be scanned, named, fixed and catalogued, fear not, there are new tools for that too!
 
Time: 9:30 am to 12:00 pm
Location: Denver Academy of Torah (DAT), 6825 E Alameda Ave, Denver
