Genealogy Day 2012 and Sharing Photos Online – Tuesday’s Tip

Hello everyone, I hope you all are enjoying the great spring weather!

I’m just now recovering from our amazing Genealogy Day a few weeks ago.  We had a few volunteers from Jane Addams Middle School out for the morning to assist in the event, and between our staff and volunteers here are some great photos from the event!

Now, I’m not telling you to go out and get a Flickr account on your own right this second because you all would tell me, ‘It’s just one more thing I have to think about.’

And you’re right.  You’re absolutely right.

I encourage you to think about how easy it is to sort through photos from your trip, conference, research session, or family archive and share them with your friends and family.  You have plenty of options for photo sharing online, and this article from Family Tree Magazine can help you sort out what best suits your needs.

If you need help sorting out your online photo needs, let me know if you need any assistance.  Our friendly library staff is here to help!

Don’t Forget!  Our next Fountaindale Public Library Genealogy Club meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9 at 7 pm!  The ever amazing Tina Beaird from Plainfield Public Library District will present a great program on Military Genealogy.  Light refreshments will be served.  Bring your friends and get ready for some insight and new places to find the resources you need!  You won’t want to miss it!

Put the ‘spring’ into your genealogy step during our Drop-In Class & Research Assistance session on Sunday May 13 from 1-5 pm!  All research levels welcome!  Need some help getting started or do you need insight in breaking down those brick walls?  We’re here to help!  Registration is not required but is highly encouraged!

Also: Don’t forget about our June field trip to the Naperville Cemetery on Wednesday, June 13 at 7 pm!  The trip will consist of a short walking tour of the cemetery, a cemetery symbolism scavenger hunt, and some experimentation in grave dousing!  If it rains, we’ll think of something else!

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns at (630) 685-4176.

See you at the library!
