Preparing your Family Legacy for Future Generations (5-week class begins 10/17) (Tuesdays, 9:00am-11:00am)   NEW!

Discover how to plan, preserve and pass on what is meaningful and important—without letting inherited items take over your family member’s home. We will begin by examining archival methods of storage for original documents and artifacts. Next, understand how to correctly digitize your collection and learn scanning techniques, including converting old formats to new formats to last for generations to come. Learn to establish a filing system for both on and offline. We will explore repository facilities as well as their acquisition policies and learn how to prepare inventories, deed of gifts, and assignment of copyrights. Finally, we will address how to determine a plan of disbursement in a genealogical codicil to your will. Disposing of the contents of your lifelong passion can be a daunting task for the designated family member. In the end, you both will be happier with the outcome if you are prepared.

Special Skill Requirement: Students must have a good understand of Computer and Internet operations. Not intended for inexperienced computer users. Also, assuming students have been working on their genealogies and have information to share.

Maximum Class Size: 15.
