Genealogy over Lunch highlights organizing, digitizing family letters

Love Library's cupola

The University Libraries’ Genealogy Over Lunch series continues June 17 with a presentation on how to use a free online resource to share family letters and other materials.

The virtual presentation, which will be led by Laura Weakly, metadata encoding specialist in the university’s Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, is 11:30 a.m. June 17. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.

Weakly will discuss how she uses the free version of Omeka to share genealogy materials. Omeka is a digital scholar project originally launched at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Medial. Weakly will also examine how to use Google Sheets to organize materials and workflow.

Genealogy over Lunch is a University Libraries’ group designed to help individuals explore and organize family history, and meets every third Thursday of the month. The group is open to all faculty, staff and students.
