Sharing your data with other people – Oxfordshire FHS meeting – 6 August 2018

On Monday, 6 August 2018, the subject of the Oxfordshire Family History Society meeting will be ‘Sharing your data with other people’, with the talk given by Kevin Poile.

Kevin says that his talk will involve a look at the things you need to consider when sharing your family tree information with other people, be they family or other researchers who have a common ancestry. There will be a look at GEDCOM files and the benefits and drawbacks of using them. He will also look at some of the different media devices available. Kevin will demonstrate how using the same techniques for sharing your data can be used to help stop you losing all your data in case of a system failure. He will also show how he’s created a totally free on-line presence for the work he’s done for St Catherine’s College.  The same principles can be used by anybody else for sharing information.

Kevin is  a member of the Oxfordshire FHS computer group panel, and also of its executive committee.

We meet at the Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, OX5 1AB, with the meeting starting at 7:30pm. Doors open at 7:15pm.  Both members and non-members will be very welcome.
