by Alice Colby Volkert
Alice will explore how people USED to "do genealogy" in the old days---with self-addressed stamped envelopes, etc.---then how people NOW "do genealogy"---with their own records, using Ancestry.com, Legacy, MAC, etc. Next will be a look into the ways people are sharing and combining their efforts. The presentation will wrap up with a look into the future: automatic processing, face recognition, semantic searches, etc. This is an interactive presentation in that the audience will be asked to participate.
