The Ottawa County Genealogical Society will meet Monday, November 18th, in the Community Room of First National Bank, 1749 North Main Street, Miami, Oklahoma. Refreshments will be served at 6:00 p.m., followed by the monthly business meeting, including program at 6:30 p.m. Carolyn Leach and Cari Allen will be the hostesses for the evening. The public is, as always, encouraged to attend this free event, sponsored by the organization.

Corresponding Secretary, Carrie Cook, will present a program that should be of interest to all computer users: Maximizing photo handling in MS Word. Newer versions of Microsoft Office allow for basic “tweaks” without ever leaving your program of choice. Many basic users never stray beyond their word processing program (Word), but may be surprised that these techniques apply to most Office programs. Demonstrations include how to lighten, darken, position, recolor, crop and resize that can be used on any graphic (photos, documents, maps, etc.). If time allows, newer Word options such as basic artistic touches such as creating duotone photos and adding borders will be shown.
