We are so excited you found us. Come join us and see why the unraveling of family history is the fastest growing hobby in the land. All members of Idaho Genealogical Society and persons interested in their family history are welcome to attend. The Idaho Genealogical Society meets 11 months out of the year. December is our holiday month.
Meetings are held at noon on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Idaho Archives located at 2205 Old Penitentiary Road, Boise, Idaho 83712-8250

Devin Ashby gave this presentation reminding us that there are also apps for Android devices.
Remember to use apps that come with your device: notes, voice memo, camera, maps, & screen shot. If you don't know how to capture what's on your screen just hold the home botton down while simultaneously pusihing the power button & you'll have an image in your photo gallery.
Great apps for family history:
1. Dropbox, Files, Google Drive, & iCloud: for storage
2. Dragon (Dictation & Recorder): for speech to text transcriptions & to record audio files
3. iDownloader; capture videos & other files
4. AppsFire: keeps you up to date with new apps
5. Evernote: organization
6. Google Voice: creates a free internet phone number to make calls & text for free
7. Talkatone: free calling from your iPad or iPod
8. Saving Memories Forever: record living memories.
