Our May program will be a panel discussion of doing genealogy research, organization, data storage and communication in the “Cloud.”
“Cloud computing” includes using Internet-based programs and services instead of programs based on your desktop or laptop computer. Typical genealogy applications include email, document sharing, online family trees, information resources, data backup and storage, social media, productivity aids, and mobile devices.
The topics to be discussed in some detail with John Finch acting as the Moderator are:
- Gary Brock: What is the Cloud, why do I need it, and how do I use it?
- Shirley Becker: Using Dropbox for Data Backup and Storage.
- Randy Seaver: Using Mobile Devices for Genealogy
After the three presentations, the panel will answer questions from the Moderator and the audience.
The panelists and moderator are long-time CVGS members and former Presidents of the society.
