Learn how to use Google Forms which is part of Google Docs - a free application complete with spreadsheets, word processing and more - to your advantage. While a basic understanding of Google Docs is not necessary, it helps if you know how to access the Google Docs program (see the Google Docs for Genealogists webinar recording). We'll cover how to create new forms, how to add templates, how to embed forms in blogs and websites, how to share forms, and how to be notified each time a form is competed.
When Thomas MacEntee is not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 2500+ members of GeneaBloggers, teaching online genealogy webinars and more, Thomas MacEntee is busy in his role as “genealogy ninja.” Stealth is not always easy, but Thomas manages to get the inside track on emerging technologies and vendors as they relate to the genealogy industry. After being laid off from a 25-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
