An association of family history researchers using computers

VicGUM® May Meeting
An electronic photo album (jAlbumn)
John Wolff

To be held Sunday May 11,
at the Mount Waverley Masonic Hall
Commencing at 2:00 pm,

We all have boxes and folders full of photographs and we know that we should do something about preserving them!

John’s winning presentation for the 2013 William Gunther Award showed one method of managing photographs and other media.

In this session, John will show how he organised and captioned about 800 of his family photos into an electronic album. Life Member John Wolff, who was one of the founding members of VicGUM back in 1984, still takes an interest in our doings.


Meetings

Monthly meetings of Victorian GUM are held in Melbourne on the second Sunday of the month, commencing at 2.00pm. Several workshops/training sessions are also held with worshops usually on the fourth Sunday of the month. Dates, venues and topics are announced in these web pages, in the VicGUM® Newsletter and on the Notice Board at the GSV Library. The monthly meetings usually include formal presentations by members or guest speakers. After meetings tea/coffe and biscuits are available and offer a casual forum for discussion and exchange of ideas amongst the members. All monthly meetings are open to VicGUM® members (non members pay $5.00—but can join on the night). The Annual General Meeting is held in August.


Workshops/Training Sessions

GUM is extensively involved with conducting lectures, workshops and training programs related to computers and family history research.

As well as the normal monthly meetings, a number of workshops and courses are run by VicGUM®, including some hands-on computer courses.

To find out more about GUM's workshops and how to get the most out of them read the GUM Workshop FAQs document.
