CKCS on WTVQ Good Day Kentucky at 9 a.m., Monday, August 14th

Tech Tips by Joe Dietz & Brooke Thomas

Using the Snipping Tool in Windows 10

1. First open your browser or document where there is something you want to copy. On my browser, I did a search for cherry pie.

2. Next, you open your snipping tool. It is usually located at the bottom of your screen on the task bar. If it is not there, you can easily find it by clicking on the search button and then typing in snipping tool. When you see it, just click on it.

3. This is the screen that will appear. Click on the word NEW and your screen will gray out. With your mouse, click and drag across the material that you want to copy. The area that you highlighted has been copied to the clipboard on your computer.

4. Now I am going to go to a word document that I have already started. Under the words on the document with your mouse you click on the screen. Next you right click with your mouse and then click on PASTE. The image you copied from the web page will appear in your word document.


Tech Night - Monday, August 14 at 7 p.m.

Genealogy - Tips to research your family tree

Whether you are a beginner or and advanced genealogy researcher, you will learn something new at August's Tech Night. Our guest speaker is Denise Shanks, Librarian at the Lexington Public Library.

She will be showing us what Ancestry Library Edition (LE) has to offer and how to use it's resources. She will also spend time showing other online genealogy sources and demonstrate researching using these sources.

She will be able to demonstrate a live 46 search of HeritageQuest and Find-a-Grave.

The evening will be enlightening and will hold your interest regardless of your level of expertise. Members and guests are welcome.


Changes to Kroger Card Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

Remember, August is the month that all Kroger customers must repeat their signup for the Community Rewards Program. But, Kroger has made changes in the way that one can sign up to participate.

Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to your Community Rewards Program. You can also do this online or with your smart phone.

You can do this anytime in August but don't forget.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. A few days after you enroll, you will see a message that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS on your purchase receipts.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
