How Computers & Gadgets are Changing Genealogy 

by Barbara Renick

Things have changed radically in the genealogy community since the typewriter era. Some problems have been overcome, others have worsened. Meanwhile prognosticators predict technology users face three C’s in the future: greater Convergence, Convenience, and Connectivity.

Presentation #2:
Tackling Tough Genealogy Tasks with 21st Century Technology 

by Barbara Renick

Most genealogists can list at least two of the three toughest genealogy tasks while shamefully admitting they dodge these tasks whenever possible. 21st Century technology makes the drudge work of genealogy easier to do than ever before thus improving the quality of our recordings of our research processes and results for generations to come.
