New JewishGen Course: Create Family History Pages

Posted by Phyllis Kramer


Do you have a lot of genealogical family material to share and want to organize it into a set of images, but don't know how? Marlis Humphrey will explain and demonstrate how to create image rich family history pages for your family.


Students will learn how to layout, design, and edit a quality family history page set for two ancestors,that can be broadened at a later time. You will learn to include documents like census, naturalization and photographs of your family, heirlooms and memorabilia.


Students will discover sources of digital resources (templates, fonts, etc.) for formatting, and will walk through a project using Photoshop Elements 10 for editing; students will learn how to format the pages for printing using Shutterfly.


Class will feature multimedia including a series of short screencasts with voice narration, powerpoint instructions and text notes for reference. We will use the FORUM for questions and answers and we will encourage students to post their digital pages (.jpg files) for review and comment.


*Please* read the full course description and the software requirements at www.jewishgen.org/education; there are no set times for this course as our students are from around the world; enroll via our secure online enrollment system.


Please address all questions to JewishGen-Education@lyris.jewishgen.org

  1. Phyllis, Apparently this class is already closed. Hopefully they will offer it again in the future.
