Denise May Levenick

BGS Spring Seminar

April 4-5, 2014

Denise’s web site:

Are you buried under mountains of family stuff?
Are you lost in piles of research notes and charts?
Are you ready to get your genealogy organized,
but don’t know how to start?
Come to the BGS Spring Seminar!
On her website, Denise notes that in every family, someone ends up with “the stuff,” and in her family, she was designated when she inherited a trunk from her grandmother filled with photos, letters, documents and lots of memorabilia. Once she began to think about “the stuff” as an archive, she knew what to do. She adapted professional archival techniques to family collections.
Today Denise is a writer, researcher and dynamic speaker with a passion for preserving and sharing family treasures and “stuff” of all kinds. She is coming to Bend in April and she will inspire and encourage you in your efforts to preserve and share your family history.
Denise will help you through these four Seminar presentations:
Preserving the Past: Archiving and Digitizing Your Family Keepsakes – Overview of preservation and digitization techniques for family historians. Includes best practices for archival storage and fundamentals of digitization and scanning family history papers.
The Paper-Less GenealogistSimple strategies to break the paper habit, file less paper, and organize what you keep. Learn the best scanner for your needs, basic scanner settings for genealogists, file-naming for easy retrieval, and baby steps to help you move toward managing less paper.  
Secrets in the Attic: Break Down Brick Walls with Home Sources Solve genealogical mysteries with clues in family sources. Photos and examples show where to find hidden details about your ancestors’ lives in the things they left behind, including old documents, letters, and unidentified photographs.
