Tutorial Tuesday » QR codes in Family History

Many of our projects get their distinctive richness from media that combine the physical and online worlds using QR codes. In this tutorial, learn how to create and use them yourself.

The simplest way to connect the physical world to anything digital is using a QR or “Quick Response” code. This simple technology, born in the 1990s, has become essential to connecting Internet information to our everyday world of places and objects. Learn more about them in the post QR codes and Family History Projects.

This tutorial will give you the background you'll need to use QR Codes in your projects. Soon, videos, presentations, databases, and more will all be accessible to family and friends as you share your projects.

If it’s helpful to you, these are the slides from today’s presentation:
