Five people gathered on Anzac Day afternoon to work on their Family History projects using ancestry.com - with members taking it in turn to connect their laptop through its HDMI port to the overhead projector, making sharing of progress to date and problem solving easy and enjoyable. The speed and internet connectivity we now have in the U3A meeting room is excellent. This is in stark contrast to the first Tech Savvy Projects class held in 2018 when class members could barely access the internet if at all and the connection through the laptop to the overhead projector froze. Thank you so much to the U3A Executive for being proactive in arranging for the installation of the NBN!
Family Research is a guided self-help group for members who are already working on their family tree. Sessions commence with report backs on ‘pains and gains’ during research over the previous month accompanied by shared problem solving and lots of encouragement and ideas for next steps. Presentations by group members and guest speakers provide inspiration and suggestions of different approaches and resources. Social distance regulations permitting, ‘hands on’ segments to learn new skills on our devices will be included in 2022. Stories are also shared each month on topics designed to encourage deeper reflection on our research. Topics to begin 2022 include ‘A Sense of Place’, ‘Hunch’ and ‘They were there when…’.
