RGS Member Profile: Diane Smith
Joined RGS in 2005
RGS Webmaster and Former Technology Interest Group Lead
I have enjoyed the Technology Interest Group and have been a member of the Rochester Genealogical Society since I moved back to Rochester in 2005. When I started doing genealogy research it was all library work, reviewing printouts of censuses and indices. After some years off to take care of my descendants I got back to genealogy. There was so much to learn about online research that I enjoyed learning about from the many other talented researchers in the group. I find they keep me up to date with new websites to check out and best research practices. As a programmer I also enjoy teaching various subjects.
