TOPICS & GUESTS THIS WEEK
FootnoteMaven, our favorite genealogical footnoter of note! Maven shares her suggestion about embedding identifying info in the scanned image of an ancestor’s photo. She’s not talking about adding a text label to the bottom of the image itself, she’s talking simple additional file information. See her blog entry titled “Get Organized: Store Information Directly In Your Photographs” for screen shots using Adobe Photo Shop. Ol' Myrt here has tried this with Corel’s Paint Shop Pro, and it works!
Research Outlines by our friends at FamilySearch.org provide ideas for genealogical studies in specific localities throughout the world. After explaining how to locate this valuable how-to collection online, Myrt provides a step-by-step tour of the Germany Research Outline in .pdf format, including information on how to navigate the .pdf file using Acrobat Reader. Feel free to pause, rewind and replay the .mp3 file, until you get the hang of using these valuable research outlines.
