Many of us are using the Internet for our ancestral searches.  Though not everything is online there is a large amount and it is important that you apply every tool to the best of your ability.  To best use this tool for research there are a few things that you should consider before, during and after online searches.  Jim Ike will discuss the topic of “Searching the Internet for Ancestors” during the OGS Computer SIG.  Jim will share some tips and some topics to best use this tool. Following Jim's presentation La Nell Shores will lead a discussion on the genealogical database application "Legacy".
Jim Ike, Walt Stoyanoski, La Nell Shores and Mike Shores are the leaders of the OGS Computer SIG.  These leaders have many years of computer and genealogy expertise and a willingness to share their knowledge. The group normally meets on the second Saturday of each month at the OGS Resource Center, 4516 NW 16th Street, OKC, OK.  This meeting will be a hybrid meeting.  Those that show proof of vaccination for Covid are welcome to attend in person all others will be required to wear masks.  Masks are available at the Resource Center.  All others wanting to attend can login to the Zoom session.  Please contact Jim Ike if you need help with the Zoom meeting login or have questions about the in-person meeting.  The Zoom login information is at the bottom of this announcement.  Our plan is to start the meeting at 9:00 AM and have it run until Noon.  The Zoom session will start about 8:45 AM for an open discussion between all of the attendees (in-person and by Zoom).  See about the OGS Computer SIG on the homepage for more information on our group.
The OGS Computer SIG is dedicated to helping genealogists use computers to assist in the search, organization and sharing of information about their family history.  We try to schedule a variety of program subjects so everyone can find something of interest to them.  Your suggestions for future program ideas and volunteers to make presentations are always welcome.  Please feel free to contact Jim Ike, Walt Stoyanoski, Mike Shores or La Nell Shores with questions about the group or topics.  Use the email links on the OGS Computer SIG homepage.
