Google Drive an Office in the Cloud
Cousin Russ and I will be presenting a free webinar titled “Google Drive, An Office in the Cloud” for Family Tree Webinars on Wednesday, 22 May 2019. We will share now to never again suffer the heartache of a dead hard drive and how to take advantage of ‘found” research time when you keep research notes available anywhere with internet access. The live broadcast begins at 2pm Eastern, 1:00pm Central, 12:00pm Mountain and 11:00am Pacific. Here’s the link to register for this event: https://familytreewebinars.com/webinar_details.php?webinar_id=923
