"Fishing on Facebook: Using Social Media For Genealogy" by Cathy Ivins
Social Media has its rightful place in the toolbox of today’s genealogists. Using it wisely and safely can lead to major breaks in brick walls through information found, or through free assistance by many knowledgeable and helpful peers and experts. This presentation will help you face your fear of Facebook, a popular and user-friendly social media site, and explain how you can benefit from its use. Let's open a can of cousin bait, without disturbing the protective seal.

"Picturing" Your Research: Finding, Procuring and Preserving Images - presented by Michelle D. Novak
Your research can come alive with images—but finding, procuring, and preserving images is a daunting prospect for many researchers. In this talk, we’ll look at all three—from the view of designer, researcher, and photographer Michelle D. Novak. She will show us ways to find images in collections, how to respect copyrights of those you find, how to organize digital assets, and some tips for protecting the photographs and documents in your own collection.
