SGRL – Digital Family Album

If you have found this page, you may have attended my recent presentation at the South Georgia Regional Library about creating a Digital Family Album.

As I do the presentation all week, I’ll work on improving this. So, I’m glad you’re here — but come back next week when I’ve got this right.

Before you get started — get some headphones or earbuds (The reference desk offers a pair for $2)
