January CIG meeting

We had a rousing, well-attended computer interest group meeting this morning. Our topic was “Getting the Most from Cyndi’s List”. Of c ourse, as is often the case when talking about this website our attention was sometimes taken off to other topics through the links. After all, how can you discuss Cyndi’s List without using any of the links found there? That just wouldn’t be right, would it?

As part of our discussion, we talked about staying organized by using a research log as we traveled through the various links, citing sources of items found, and logging certain sites/databases as for negative results. We also talked about deciding which sites/databases we might need to return to at a later date for updated information.

Next month we’ll be talking about “Using the LDS Family Search website including the pilot program”.

Thanks for the fun morning everyone. Here’s hoping to see you there. Of course, don’t forget our evening meeting on January 21st.
