Hello and Welcome,
Details of next week's meetings are below.
Tuesday 15 September - Tuesday Forum - 9:30am - 12:30pm
This month's Forum will be devoted to member's questions and comments about the programs they use and the websites they visit.
As the range of topics that can be discussed is almost endless, the shared experience and expertise of members at the meeting will be very interesting.
Tuesday 15 September - Family History - T Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
At this month's meeting Terry Eakin will discuss how you can find your United Kingdom ancestors.
During the course of the meeting he will look at the Births, Marriages and Deaths records including those during 1837-2005 and the Overseas records, the Complete 1841-1911 Census for England & Wales, the largest online collection of Non-Conformist Records, Parish Records, Wills, Probates and Testaments, Military Records, School, College & University Registers, and miscellaneous other sources.
If time permits Terry will also look at The Genealogist, FindMyPast & Ancestry websites.
Saturday 19 September - Web Design - S South - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
At this month's meeting the members of the group will look at how a website is broken down into rows and columns, as shown in Russ Weakley's tutorial on creating a modern webpage, and explore how he creates his base CSS file.
They will also consider how these ideas can be employed in their own web sites.
The group will then look at Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 and consider what it has to offer the web designer.
Of particular interest is the Reading View icon that appears in the address bar. They will consider whether there are any differences between the "reading view" and the "print view" and whether designers need to do anything to a site to make the "reading view" work.
Information for Members and Visitors:
All Meetings, unless specifically stated above, are held on the
1st Floor, Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney.
