Article/Excerpt: Mac-using Genealogist (103 years old)

Interesting story at the Seattle Times: Call Helen Burcham Green one wired lady.

The Bothell resident exchanges e-mail with relatives around the world. She writes books on her Mac computer and she advises people not to trust everything they find on the Internet.

“It’s too easy to do the research, and you can’t depend upon it,” she said. “People want to take shortcuts today.”

Of the world’s computer literati, Green could be the oldest.

She turned 103 Wednesday.

She entered the computer world a decade ago after writing her first book, an extensive family genealogy that traces ancestors back to the 1400s.
