TOPIC
Genealogy Technology: Latest Trends, Hardware & Software


SPEAKER
David M. Kleiman


We’ll take an updated look at how genealogy database software can help to organize research, share charts, and create books or websites for your family.  Presented as a very interactive (audience participation) program offering expert insights on how to judge your own needs and requirements in choosing or upgrading this primary genealogical tool.


Starting from a truly independent viewpoint, we look at current technology trends (software and hardware), and at the three most popular genealogical database programs currently available (Windows PC or MAC). The Q&A includes a discussion on best practices for entering, sourcing, and reporting with your research data.
