This talk will cover Google Workspace (Docs, Sheets, Forms, Calendar, Gmail, Maps, and GAS [Google Apps Script]) and voice transcription services. Whether for personal use or as a member of a local genealogy society leadership group, using these technologies can offer significant possibilities for offering more services and working more effectively and efficiently. Google Workspace is designed for use by teams and is FREE if you have a Google/Gmail account.
