Computer Committee of FCGHS
The Computer Committee shall manage the Society’s website and shall inform and educate members about computer resources and processes for genealogical and historical information. This committee shall set appropriate computer standards for the society and shall make recommendations for the purchase, use and maintenance of computer equipment. (Society By-Laws)
The computers, Internet, Facebook, Twitter and other on line sites, has revolutionized the way genealogists research. In June 1991 the Franklin County Genealogical Society held its first computer seminar with Galen Pinkham as instructor. A "Computer Club" began monthly meetings.
Unfortunately the "club" no longer exists.
The Society would like to reorganize and re-establish a "Computer and Technology Interest Group". If there are persons who would like to organize and head this Interest Group, please contact the society at (614) 871-2110.
