Follow Friday - Genealogy Star

I chose Genealogy Star as my Follow Friday blog after reading the posting James made on January 5th, Send your parents (or yourself) a Tech Support care package!

As everyone who follows Genealogy Star knows, James dispenses a wealth of information on almost a daily basis.  This particular post I find so exciting!  It's all about a Google initiated website called Teach Parents Tech.  When you go to the site you can fill out a very simple form and send short video clips to your technically challenged parents (or yourself) about various tech subjects.

Most videos are no longer than one minute and cover a variety of topics including:

How to Copy and Paste
How to Make a Screenshot
How to Make a Blog
How to Shorten a Long URL
How to Check Your Spelling
How to Chat Online
How to Create an Email Signature
How to Resize a Picture
How to Transfer Files Between Computers

I could go on and on but you get the idea!  There are 52 videos in all so sending just one a week will help those who are tech challenged without overwhelming them. 

Head over to Teach Parents Technology now to begin sending those videos.  And, if you don't already, be sure to sign up to follow the postings at Genealogy Star.  James has a fantastic blog!
