Genealogical Society Meeting

November 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$5

The Family Tree: Crowdsourcing and Collaborating to Memorialize
Your Ancestors by Carol Kostakos Petranek.

The collaborative nature of the
Family Tree allows an ancestor’s descendants to work together to create a unique ancestor page. Vital statistics with the requisite supporting documentation create the backbone of an ancestral profile, but photos and stories bring him/her to life. This session will explore the Family Tree structure and demonstrate on how to add digital media to enrich your family’s
history.

Genealogical Society meetings are held at the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Dr., Rockville, MD. Call 240-314-5019 for directions. There is ample free parking. We request a voluntary donation of $5.00 from non-members. If Montgomery County Schools are closed due to weather, we do not meet.
