Digital Scrapbooking: Technology Tools to Create Shareable Family Keepsakes

Guest Speaker: Meghan Villhauer, Cuyahoga County Public Library Librarian

We all want to share our family's memories and here is a unique way to do it. Members should bring digital pictures on a flash drive to use during this session. You will have the beginnings of a photobook that can be shared digitally or printed at the end of the session.

*************************************

The African American Genealogical Society of Cleveland meets at Shaker Main Library on the fourth Saturday of each month* at 9:30am.

The meeting begins with business reports and updates, welcoming of guests, and genealogical news and information. 

After a short break, a genealogy presentation is offered on a different topic each month, beginning at approximately 10:30am.

Following the presentation, breakout sessions of interest groups and abilities meet, and group leaders help people resolve genealogical questions and problems.

The public is invited to attend any or all portions of the program: the membership meeting, the public program, and/or the breakout sessions.
