German Genealogy Group to meet Thursday

The German Genealogy Group will meet this Thursday, March 3 at the V.F.W.  in Hicksville.

There will be an orientation at 7 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. This month’s program will be “How to Protect Your Online Family Photos.”

Posting pictures of family members past and present is a national hobby, but sharing them with just family and friends isn’t protection enough. It’s really easy to copy a photo online and use it without attribution.  Before your photos become a plot line in a TV series, take steps to prevent it. Watermarking your images is easy. There are apps for i-devices, android ones and web apps to help make it difficult to lose control over your images. Examples will illustrate how to add a watermark and what to include.
