Find A Grave Video Presentation

WGS introduces a 3-part Find A Grave video presentation that brings something new to experienced and novice users alike. Find A Grave has many features, most underused, that can help a genealogist research and document their ancestors' resting places.
Each part is less than 15 minutes long and includes traditional slides interleaved with actual demonstrations in Find A Grave, all narrated by Gary Clark. Part 1 is an introduction and overview of basic research steps, though the experienced user may find something new. Plus it has a fun ending. Part 2 reveals many great features that can help a genealogist keep track of ancestor resting places. This is probably the most important part of the presentation. Part 3 covers the basics of entering new records and making changes to existing ones. 
This was developed specifically for the Wichita Genealogical Society. The topic was original scheduled as a live presentation at the April monthly meeting, and now broadcast in place of the May monthly meeting.
