LECTURE AT THE ONTARIO GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY’S CONFERENCE 2016

Having a personal or family website is a great way to share the results of your research and your family story. With WordPress as a “content management system” or CMS, you’ll need to make a few simple choices about how you want your site to look, and then the WordPress theme takes care of the formatting. You can concentrate on the content. It can be in short, easily digested (and easily written) articles—about an ancestor, a family home, occupation, or the research process. Interviews or record transcriptions and photos add variety. The articles can be any length; they can be linked together; and if new information is found the articles can be easily changed. This session will show you the basics of starting a WordPress site, introduce the jargon, help you choose an appropriate template or “theme”, and structure your site. Absolutely no knowledge of coding is required.
