Family History Expo—Arizona, 2012 (Yuma and Mesa)

January 3, 2012
Family History Expos, Inc.

On January 17 we will be at the Family History Expo in Yuma, Arizona, and on January 20–21 we will be at the Expo in Mesa, Arizona. As usual, we will have a booth showcasing some of the books I’ve designed, and we will happily discuss your project with you, answering questions and generating new ideas for you. Click here to see and read more about one of the family history books I designed.

As of last July, I also happen to live in Yuma now. That means I can arrange meetings and consultations with you at your home or office. I look forward to meeting lots of local patrons and getting to know my neighbors!

I will also be teaching a class at this expo. The class should be useful to anyone who regularly uses word processing programs such as Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, OpenOffice Writer, or virtually any other text software. I will be teaching about the styles function, an incredibly useful feature that most people don’t know about. If you type documents on your computer, whether it be for family history, your journal, a book, a thesis, work reports, or anything else, you will benefit from this class. I will post here the information for my class time and location as soon as I receive it.

Have you ever had any of the following problems when working with a typed computer document?

  • “When I want to change the look of my headings or chapter titles, it takes forever to go through my whole file and update them.”
  • “When I do update them, sometimes I miss one and don’t realize it, then it looks wrong.”
  • “I constantly have to update my table of contents page numbers every time I add to my document.”
  • “It turns out my great-grandfather’s last name was spelled differently from how I thought, but it would take forever to hunt through my document and change each instance of his name.”

If you have ever had any of these problems, this class is for you. I will walk you through how to use the Styles feature to quickly organize your document and make it much easier to update and change the layout in the future.

If you can’t make it to the class or to my booth, I am always happy to do individual consultations either in person, by phone, or by webcam.
