Genealogy Class at Chula Vista Adult School

CVGS member Judy Helton is teaching a FREE weekly class on Genealogy at the Chula Vista Adult School (1034 Fourth Avenue, Room 303, a computer lab) on Mondays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Judy describes the class as:

"We work from the Family Tree Maker 2009 data base and the subjects taught in the class are a variety of subjects that all pertain to "Recording Family History." We learn how to use, Photoshop CS2 for photo restoration, digital book preparation and publishing, help with scrapbooking to record pictures and family stories, and using a variety of computer resources to find more family data. There is personal help as well as group discussions and lectures. All are welcome and the classes are free. Students just need to go the office and register. Students are required to bring a portable thumb drive to carry info back and forth to their own records at home. Preferably at least 8 gb."

This is an opportunity to learn how to use Family Tree Maker 2009 and to use the World Deluxe version of Several of our CVGS members attend this class regularly and have benefited from it. The attendees save their FTM 2009 database, and any other work they do, to their flash drives and can use it at home if they have the software.

You can't beat the price, or the opportunity, and Judy makes it fun for everyone. It's a great place to learn about doing genealogy research online too.
