ASCCA's Annual Conference is being held on 17 & 18 November
The Conference Program is can be seen here.
Hello and Welcome,
Details of next week's meetings are below.
Tuesday 17 November - Tuesday Forum - 9:30am - 12:30pm
The Internet is truly a wonderful thing and the range of tasks that can be undertaken online is extraordinary.
Nevertheless, being online is not without its risks and at this meeting Bryan McDonald will discuss how you can stay safe when you use the Internet.
A question and answer session and general discussion will also be available for members at the meeting.
Tuesday 17 November - Family History - T Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Photographs from the Sydney studios of Charles Kerry and Henry King will be the main topic of discussion at this month's meeting including a collection of photographs of World War 1 soldiers.
Not all the names of the soldiers held in two separate databases are known and only limited information about the photographs is available free. However, full family data can be purchased and it is believed that it will be available without cost within a year or two.
A secondary topic for the meeting will be the "Snapshot of Britain taken on 3 September 1939 before the bombs from Germany hit in World War 2".
Saturday 21 November - Web Design - S South - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
For several months the Web Design group has been following a free course from Sitepoint, a professional forum which has loads of free reference guides and articles.
Sitepoint also sells books and courses. One course, “Build your first web site: HTML & CSS”, is free and comes with transcripts and code examples.
At this month's meeting the group members will do some practical work based on the information in the course to build a basic site. They will also look at ways to adapt the code used in the course for their own web site designs.
As this will be the last meeting for the year the group will discuss what they could do next year.
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.
