JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS North Jersey meeting March 27 #general
Paul & Myrna Lewis <pmlewis6391@...>
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 welcome.
