This course will be on two Tuesdays: May 2 and May 16, 2017.
Registration is required. Registration is now open.
Description: In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to use their family history materials such as photos, maps, and family trees to create an eye-catching poster with commonly available software. Posters are an excellent method for connecting with others at genealogy meetings, for taking along to family reunions, as gifts, or for hanging on the wall at home.
