The long list of resources at FamilySearch continues to expand. Most family history researchers are unaware of the Family Tech site by the folks at FamilySearch.
The articles posted on the site are jam-packed full of ideas, recommendations and how-to’s in maximizing technology to strengthen your research, documentation and preservation skills.
The preponderance of the articles are written by researchers that have ‘won’ their stripes in the use of the tools they describe in their postings. Not only do they understand the tool, they understand how researchers can and will use it in their ancestral quest.
The genealogical community wins all the way around on Family Tech. Knowledgeable authors, that speak ‘genealogy’ coupled with practical experience and affiliation with the standards and organization of FamilySearch.
The articles are written to address a wide spectrum of researchers, from beginners who are purchasing a new computer to seasoned lineage seekers.
