Oxfordshire FHS computer meeting - Monday 4 February 2013

Colleagues

The next computer meeting of the Oxfordshire Family History Society will take place on Monday 4 February 2013. It will be held at the usual venue at Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, Oxford OX5 1AB. Doors open at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.

The subject of the talk at 7.30pm is :-

"Cloud Computing – one Family Researcher's Perspective"

This will be presented by Graham Walter.

Graham has told me that in a time where many of us have more than one computing device, as well as other family members who would like to see our genealogy research, the cloud offers us a way to share and transfer information with a far greater ease than previously available. "The Cloud" is something often referred to but not necessarily always understood. It not only offers us a way to collect the data associated with family history but also to share and collaborate with other people all over the world, in real-time if we want to. This talk will explore how one family researcher - Graham - makes use of cloud tools in his family research.

Our speaker Graham Walter is a member of the Society of Genealogists. He is one of that organisation's "Census Detectives", and as such will be a familiar face to those who attend our Open Day.

For those who live "out of county" or who are otherwise unable to attend, the usual detailed synopsis of the talk will be published in the "Oxfordshire Family Historian", the journal of the Oxfordshire Family History Society, which is issued to members of the society three times per year.

All members, potential members and their guests are welcome to attend the meeting.
