Presented by HCGS Members Dr. James Kuttler and Bob Greiner.
This project was originally a transcription of the Emory Church Records 1859-1962. Dr. Kuttler was asked to be in charge. He will talk about the nature and condition of the records, how they photocopied the marriage and baptism records; how the data was then organized and distributed to volunteers for transcription; difficulties with reading the handwriting; glitches and overcoming them and proofreading.
Bob Greiner will then talk on how he organized and formatted the transcribed records; how the records are now stored on our www.hcgsmd.org website and how to access and use them.
All free ---- Everyone is welcome ----- Refreshments provided by members.
Note: If Howard Co. Senior Centers are closed, the meeting will be cancelled.
