 "Excel and Word, the Genealogist's Best Friend" by Hal Horrocks

Excel and Word can greatly enhance your genealogy research.  Examples showing how they can be used in your everyday research will be presented.  From taking your current database and converting it to Excel for better examination to extracting large amounts of data for finding those tough to find ancestors will be shown.

A native Californian and longtime Orange County California resident, Hal Horrocks is a professional genealogist, teacher, and lecturer.  He has been doing family research for 15 years and is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS), Guild for One-Name Studies, Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society (UK), and Cheshire Family History Society (UK).  He has written several articles for publication in the UK.  He is also the current President of OCCGS. In addition, he has developed a web site for the Horrocks surname that includes a one-name study, a DNA study, and family trees for Horrocks researchers.  Hal has been giving lectures to genealogy societies throughout Southern California for the last 5 years.
