  • April 11
  • June 13 - We will introduce and demonstrate IBooks Author. This app allows individuals to create iBooks on a computer with the Macintosh X OS. Once the iBooks have been created, they may be viewed and read on a Mac computer, an IPad or an iPhone. This app has potential for the genealogist to create family stories, research results and share trips to ancestral locations with family and the genealogical community. It is also possible to place the iBook in the iTunes Store for downloading free or for sale.
