    Please join us on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. at the
    Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville,
    when Stephen P. Morse presents our next program: "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools."

    The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
    the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward, it was expanded to help
    with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to
    evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16
    separate categories, ranging from genealogical searches to
    astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This
    presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the
    highlights of each one.

    Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has
    received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding
    Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish
    Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical
    Society, first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of
    Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce
    from Polish genealogical societies.

    In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate
    degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research,
    development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical
    papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best
    known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's
    Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years

    The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
    to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
    meeting. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates
    and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.
