Publishing Your Family History to the Web - Version 2

540

Published on

Version 2 of this popular presentation, relates to Blogs, Slideshare, and Self-Publishing.

This presentation will be given at the Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONS) Computer Seminar in Epson, Surrey, England on Saturday August 7, 2010.

The synposis reads:
If you can e-mail, or upload files then you have enough knowledge and experience to publish to the web. The lecture will focus on the easy alternatives – Blogs, Slideshare, and self-publishing printed books. The hardest part is deciding what method you are going to use!

The majority of us use the internet for searching, and exchanging information mainly by e-mail. If you have virtual presence the likelihood of others finding you increases significantly.

Please note, this lecture does not include programming, web design, or setting up a website. However, you do not need these skills to publish to the web.
