WNYGS Program 'Technology to the Rescue: Free Tools Every Genealogist Needs in their Toolbox' with Linda Debbie

Program Description: Linda Debe will show ways to work smarter, not harder with free tools from programs to extensions to built-in features of their PC or Mac. These tools will help with organization, research, writing, and plotting land deeds, as well as abstracting, extracting, and transcribing records. Learn how to make your PC work for you rather than the other way around. There is something in this webinar for everyone and who doesn’t love FREE!
