3 Tech Tools Every Genealogist Should Have, always on the look-out for better ways to research your ancestors, recently posted an article entitled, 3 Tech Tools Every Genealogist Should Have.

Their recommendations:

  • A tablet
  • Evernote
  • An external hard drive

I have replaced a tablet (which I never liked using) with a Chromebook (because it has a keyboard and a real browser).  There are now very small (10" screen) light-weight, Windows computers available for under $200.  And a MacBook Air is also reasonably small and lightweight - although a bit pricier.

At last night's workshop, I got a look at a 10" ASUS Transformer that is a fully-functioning computer that turns into a tablet.  The best of both worlds!

I have been using Evernote for a decade and own a stack of peripheral hard drives of every size imaginable. So I can attest to the value of all these recommendations.

Take a look at the article and decide for yourself!
