                                 Backing Up Your Genealogy Data - Live Webinar
by Thomas MacEntee

Have you ever experienced a data loss when it comes to your genealogy research? Not yet? Well if not, have you prepared for what might happen if your hard drive fails? What if your laptop is lost or stolen? Learn the basics of backing up all your genealogy data including identifying data. Learn common backup methods and how to use free online programs, such as DropBox, Google Docs, Picasa and more, to help you make sure your data will always be available! This will be a live webinar coming from Thomas’s base in Chicago directly to our facility.

Thomas MacEntee is a genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community. Utilizing over 25 years of experience in the information technology field, Thomas writes and lectures on the many ways blogs, Facebook and Twitter can be leveraged to add new dimensions to the genealogy experience. As the creator of GeneaBloggers he has organized and engaged a community of over 2,000 bloggers to document their own journeys in the search for ancestors.
