PRESERVING YOUR FAMILY HISTORY ON FamilySearch® FAMILY TREE

Presented by:
Maureen Brady

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Maureen Brady, a former school librarian and computer educator, has over twenty-five years experience with family history research and is now a professional genealogist. She has traced her own Scottish roots back to the end of the 17th century and beyond, and has also pursued Chicago area, the trans-Allegheny U.S., Irish and Swedish research. She is the co-director and trainer for the Crystal Lake (IL) Family History Center.

ABOUT THE TOPIC

FamilySearch®, a free website sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, provides many resources to help you discover your family history, but it also provides a way for you to preserve your family history. FamilySearch® Family Tree is designed as a collaborative record of your family, including photos, documents and audio memories. Learn the advantages of using FamilySearch® Family Tree and how by using both the website and mobile apps, Family Tree provides a system to record your family events, preserve precious photos & documents and provide a record of your family today and for future generations.

Using her own family data and photos, Maureen Brady will provide an overview of Family Tree, and its mobile apps, including making additions and corrections to Family Tree and using the mobile apps to record today’s memories.
