Editing Photographs & Other Documents
Place: YM-YWHA of North Jersey
Date: Sunday March 27, 2005
Time: 2:00 PM
Many genealogists have gathered photographs and documents to go along with our
computerized family history records. It's a two-step process: first, we have to
put the actual "hard-copy" material into computer-readable form, and then we often
have to do some work on it before we include it in our database. The first stage -
scanning the photo or document into a computer file - was discussed at an earlier
meeting of our group. Now we're ready to tackle the second part.
Bob Kraus, a long-time member of JGSNJ, will demonstrate some of the photo-editing
techniques available with fairly inexpensive computer software. A key element of
his presentation will be the assurance that patience rather than extensive
computer skill is the primary requirement to producing these most worthwhile
additions to your genealogy records.
The JGS meetings are held at the YM-YWHA of North Jersey, 1 Pike Drive, Wayne, NJ.
The Charles & Bessie Goldman Library will be open at 1:30 P.M. to give those
interested a chance to use our extensive resource center and socialize. The
program will begin at 2:00 P.M. There is no charge for the program. All are
