Here's mine:

I use these items every week to support my genealogy research, 

*  I put all of my family tree information from whatever source into RootsMagic 8 software.  I add events, notes and sources for my ancestral families, create reports (descendants lists, individual summaries, pedigree charts, etc.), using RootsMagic.

*  I use books and periodicals to feed information into the 52 Ancestors posts, usually from the bookcases with binders of paper in them filed by surname.  Some books and periodicals are online and I use those too.

*  Websites used include (DNA matches, record hints, record searches, news, etc.); (news, family tree profiles, profile sources, the Wiki, record searches, etc.); (news, DNA matches, record matches, record searches, etc.); (record searches, periodicals, etc.); FamilyTreeWebinars (education); YouTube (videos): Blogger (blog posts); Google (searches, email, contacts, maps, books, etc.); Newspapers,com (obituaries, marriages, articles, etc.); Find A Grave (cemetery records); Zoom (society programs); Feedly (reading blogs); and many more occasionally.

*  Ephemera includes family photos, family papers, most of which I have digitized.
