Genealogy presentation to explore ‘QR Codes’

GRANGEVILLE — Babette Peterson, owner of PCS Laser in Lewiston, will explain the use of QR Codes at the next meeting of the Idaho County Genealogical Society.

The Idaho County Genealogical Society meets Wednesday, April 8, in the Grangeville City Council Meeting Room, 9:30 a.m. Peterson’s program will follow at 10:15 a.m.

QR — or Quick Response – Codes can turn a family monument into an interactive experience. This combines bar coding and the Internet. The code is embedded in a heavy-duty sticker that can be affixed to a tombstone, monument or any flat surface, allowing family, friends, genealogists or others to learn more about the deceased than simply their name, birth and death dates.

Family stories, pictures, videos, songs and more can be recorded into the QR Code. This information can be scanned, using a smart phone or other device, and shared with others.

All are invited to attend the presentation April 8.
