Do I Still Need a Desktop Genealogy Program?
Panel Discussion

Or is an online family tree enough? Renee Zamora has posed this question on her blog. Members have trees at Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, MyHeritage, WorldConnect, and more. We also use quite a few very good desktop programs. What is the answer? We'll look at Renee's comments and ideas of our own.


Afternoon Computer Fundamentals
Managing Your Genealogy Library
with Jean Hoffman

Are your genealogy books paper or digital? How do you track them? Can you find that one special chapter again? Many books can be found free online. More are becoming available in Kindle and other digital formats. Some people catalog their books in a spreadsheet. Others might use an online service like LibraryThing. We'll look at some techniques.
