The web is rich in possibilities relating to photobooks - an area of interest to a number of Tech Savvy Projects participants. We heard that members of the Benalla Camera Club like to use the program Momento for photobooks. There are many youtube videos related to using Momento - click here to explore them.
Often scanners and printers have apps for photobooks, calendars etc associated with them Check these out--they may be just what you need and synch well with your printer.
We were inspired to think aboutt how our family history journey might be celebrated using a blog - with Bev demonstrating a 'Lee Devitt Family History 'blog she has just started to build. Bev gave us a very brief demonstration of the 'drag and drop' features and similarity to Word functions of Weebly - more to come later. Take a coffee break and check out this video... break it up into chunks if necessary.
John spoke about an app which he uses on his phone - I asked him more about it...
"The family history app is called HEREDIS. It is free and I have the version for iphone. However, a quick peek at Google Play shows me that there is an android version that looks even better. I might have to download the android version.
It accepts gedcom files exported from most family tree programs. And as I have 2452 persons on my family tree, it does not appear to have an upper limit on persons. However, if you have altered any of the usual gedcom field names, it will not import your changes. For example, I changed one of the Mormon information field names to date of ticket of leave. The change in the field name did not import although the information in the field did.
You can also use the app to import and view other gedcom files. Import them and then the program at startup will offer you a choice of family trees that you can view."
