Wikis as Genealogical Information Tools

The Toronto Branch of OGS has a presentation by one of their own, Marian Press, on Monday 24 January 2011.

Many organizations are doing the Wiki thing. A wiki is a web site that allows individuals to collaboratively build content. As a result the content may continue to change and is always a work in progress. This lecture will cover the technology of wikis, the location of the major genealogy wikis and how to contribute to them, as well as providing information on how to use freely-available software on the Internet to establish one’s own wiki.

Marian will be presenting one of several courses and workshops Toronto Branch has scheduled in the next few months. See the list at http://www.torontofamilyhistory.org/courses.html

Marian is scheduled to be in Ottawa in March for a BIFHSGO monthly meeting presentation.
