A Treasure Trove of Information.
At EuroSCUG’s first meeting for 2017, senior computer users turned up in droves to marvel as popular local genealogist Cora Num demonstrated the wonders of the powerful Trove website.
Trove is an Australian online library database aggregator, collecting information from libraries, cultural and research organisations, and other sources. The aim is to provide free digitised information for current and future generations.

Cora showed how to find information on the website and how to organise such information for future reference. She demonstrated ways to refine your search to eliminate irrelevant entries and how to find out where the original copy of the book or photo is kept. In some cases a digital or printed copy of an item can be ordered.
After morning tea, Cora elaborated on her topic with a smaller group, while other small groups covered phones, computers and tablets for beginners, and moving files and photos between phones/tablets and laptops.
