I am always amused when anyone states that they are "too old to learn about computers." Apparently, Helen Burcham Green doesn't pay much attention to that statement either. She entered the computer world a decade ago after writing her first book, an extensive family genealogy that traces ancestors back to the 1400s. She exchanges e-mail with relatives around the world.
She now 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."
Helen Burcham Green is now writing a new book - her life story.
By the way, she turned 103 last Wednesday.
