The D.A.R. and computers

September 17, 2007 at 3:46 pm Leave a comment

Today I did my annual talk for the DAR chapter that meets here at the Library.  Bless their hearts, these mostly 60+ ladies (okay, mostly 70+) have decided it’s time to add computer searches to their genealogy passtime.  Amazingly, some of the 80+ ladies have actually been online for several years and just want to sharpen their skills a bit.  I have to really give them credit for wanting to learn new skills in order to better take part in their chosen hobby.  As a practicing genealogist for over forty years, I can’t believe the world of information that has been opened with the advent of the web – and sites like the LDS FamilySearch and Ancestry.com.  I’m never too tired or too complacent  to stop looking for new technology or new websites to further my knowledge of family history.  The D.A.R. ladies are another example of seniors taking advantage of lifelong learning.
