A cup of coffee with a friend was the motivation for this post. It seemed that her dormant interest in family history was being stirred by my blog. However, she felt that her perceived lack of writing skills was holding her back. This post is for Maggie and anyone else who finds the idea of "writing" a family history just too daunting.
Digital Photo Labelling
Writing on the backs of photos is no way to label them. The best way to do may scare the pants of you! It's called "meta data". Now, my approach to techy stuff has always been that I may not understand what it is but I do know how to do it! In this post I will show you "how" just how easy it is! Honest!!
Did you know that one of the main reasons genealogists start researching their family tree is photographs! So, why don't we look after them more? Why isn't labeling our photos up there with DNA testing? How many of these examples have you experienced!
