Digital Photography: A Tool for Your Genealogical Research

Back By Popular Demand!

Let Mary Beth Frederick teach you how to use your digital camera to take photographs of books, original documents, microfilms, and computer screens. Using her method will save you time, money, energy, and frustration. You'll also be kind to your back by never again toting a mountain of paper in your carry-on baggage!

12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.  Lunch – bring a brown bag and participate in an informal question and answer session.
1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.  Hands On: take advantage of the equipment and materials in the library and use your own camera to try the techniques presented during the lecture. Mary Beth will be on hand to assist and make suggestions.

is required. No walk-ins will be admitted.

Mary Beth Frederick has enjoyed careers in marketing research, systems analysis and design, project
