Dwyer Center Classroom
 
Moderator: Barbara Holmes. Today's program is "Using Microsoft PowerPoint to create / preserve a digital Genealogical Story".
The goal of this session is to use PowerPoint to create a family history slide show or printed book. The instruction will be in the ‘learn as we create’ format, allowing those with limited knowledge of PowerPoint to learn some basic skills, while creating their own family slide show. Participants should (to gain the most benefit) bring their laptops/tablets with PowerPoint access in addition to some digital items, documents and family history to incorporate into their slide show. Examples of these digital items are: pictures (.jpeg or .png), Pedigree Charts, documents containing stories and/or vital statistics of family members. 
Assuming there will still be COVID-19 restrictions, we need to limit the number of attendees to 16, to allow appropriate distancing. Masks should be worn as a courtesy to others attending. Laptops are encouraged but not required to attend the SIG.
 
Participants who sign-up will be notified by Wednesday, July 15 to verify their registration is within our limits. A waiting list will be accepted, and used if there are cancellations. Please register by emailing Education@txsaghs.org. This is a free offering for SAGHS members but we ask a $5.00 donation from non-members.
