Digital Ghosts and Franking Credits at EuroSCUG
At EuroSCUG’s March meeting, Committee member and Local Area Group Convenor David Num showed members how to future proof their digital assets. He listed the various types of information people store digitally (photos, family history, documents, share and bank account details etc.) and suggested that some of that information should be shared with family members NOW. David provided information on how to bequeath your Gmail, Facebook, and other digital accounts to your family and heirs, and suggested tools to help record online memories. He also mentioned that you can organise a digital headstone, enabling mourners to engage digitally with the departed loved one! The presentation was well researched, informative, and the topic was lightened by some wonderful cartoons.
David provided a link for members to enable them to access the information. EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Seniors Computer Users Group) 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. The next meeting, at 10am on Wednesday 3rd April, at Moruya Golf Club, will be the AGM. After morning tea, guest speaker Bill Radley, local share trader and chair of Australian Shareholders Association Batemans Bay Discussion Group, will give a timely presentation entitled “Franking Credits – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Seniors Computer Users Group) 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.

To ease the burden on this small group, and allow them to take well-earned breaks, the group is always looking for more volunteers to share their computer expertise. Members meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in towns along the Eurobodalla. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held. For more information visit our website at www.euroscug.org, or phone 0431 809 073
