Second Saturday Family History Workshop: Online Publishing with Linda McCauley

    Improve listing Presented by

The Kentucky Genealogical Society joins the Kentucky Historical Society in hosting a series of free family history workshops each month at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History.

This December, join us in welcoming guest speaker, Linda McCauley, as she explores multi-faceted topic of Online Publishing!

Topic: Online Publishing: Get Your Genealogy Out There

After lots of research and hard work, you have hundreds (thousands?) of names, dates, places, stories, photos, and more. Why not share the wealth – and maybe connect with some cousins in the process? You can do it through online publishing.

Don’t let that phrase “online publishing” scare you. Options run the gamut:

  • a simple message board post
  • uploading files at various online tree websites
  • a blog
  • your own full-blown personal genealogy website

You don’t have to be a tech guru or a professional writer to have an online genealogy presence. Learn how online publishing could lead to knocking out some of those bricks in your walls. (both sessions will cover this broad topic of ‘online publishing’)
