Senior Computer Group Open Day Feb 20th


Eurobodalla Seniors Computer Group (EuroSCUG) is holding an Open Day from 10am until 12 noon on Wednesday 20th February 2019, at Moruya Golf Club.

Come along and ask us any questions about your device. We don’t know all the answers, but we’ll do our best to help you. Meet some members and join us for a cuppa!

If you know a bit about your devices, why not join us and give a hand to help others? EuroSCUG is a group of people who share computer skills in a supportive social atmosphere, helping each other make the best use of their computers, tablets and smart phones.

Click on the above for a slideshow and larger images At the last meeting, popular local genealogist, Cora Num, returned to give a presentation entitled “Trove – One Search, a Wealth of Information”. Cora demonstrated how to use the Trove website, a free service hosted by the National Library of Australia, to research information on a variety of subjects. A search collates and draws together material about the topic or person, and presents the results in zones.

She related some interesting stories she had found, such as that of the pig who rescued the passengers from the wreck of the SS Kameruka, shipwrecked south of Moruya in 1897. Many interesting old photos of people, houses, roads and scenery of the local area can also be found on the website.

Another interesting story Cora related was about a prosthetic hand, developed by an Adelaide dentist, for Corporal Coles, who lost the fingers of his right hand, in 1842, when the gunpowder in his cannon exploded. He used the hand for 42 years until his death in 1886.

Researching genealogy is just one of the ways EuroSCUG members use their devices. Others include email, online banking, editing photos, travel, and saving money. Come to our Open Day and ask us how!

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
