The handout from today's workshop is included in this announcement.  To download it to your own computer, click on the blue Paperless Genealogy... link above and when the new page opens select the blue down arrow at the bottom right.  Let us know if you have any problems.

Someone wanted to know what camera Pete ordered.  It is a Canon Powershot SX260 (that's the one with built in GPS among a number other features, but unfortunately, no optical viewfinder, just the LCD).

The "CutePDF" web side at <http://cutepdf.com/> will want another program downloaded to complete the installation so be online when you install it. Sonny suggested "doPDF" as another PDF printing program and it is at <http://www.dopdf.com/>.  You print to these just like you would print to a real printer except that a PDF is created (you choose where to store it) instead of a paper copy.
The URLs for the places to get PDF/eBook books and magazines are:

Google Books  http://books.google.com/
