Please join us on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. at the
Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville,
when Stephen P. Morse presents our next program: "One-Step Webpages: A
Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools."

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward, it was expanded to help
with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to
evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16
separate categories, ranging >from genealogical searches to
astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This
presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the
highlights of each one.

Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has
received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding
Contribution Award >from the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit >from the National Genealogical
Society, first-ever Excellence Award >from the Association of
Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce
from Polish genealogical societies.
In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate
degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research,
development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical
papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best
known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's
Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years
ago.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
