Mastering Computer Basics Results in a Closer Family

Categories: Homepage News

Victor Novomeiskiy, age 71, began at the Lawson ORT Yekaterinburg vocational training center two years ago, mastering basic computer skills and learning how to navigate the internet. Victor loves jazz music and when he discovered the ease of accessing it online, he bought a laptop and infused his life with jazz.  Last year Victor took a course on how to archive family data; he digitized his family documents and classified them via excel.  Victor created a family tree and shared it with relatives in other countries, who added information to what he had provided about five generations.  Thanks to his new computer knowledge, Victor has added meaning to his life, and the family tree has united his entire large family. He is grateful for the knowledge he obtained at the ORT center.
