Favorite Class @ RootsTech

Sorry has been so long since I have blogged.  Would like to share my favorite class @ RootsTech:  No Purchase Necessary:  Free Genealogy Topls for your iPad/iPhone

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. 

We had a wonderful time @ RootsTech.   Please visit the site  www.RootsTech.org 

I will be sharing more class notes & all the wonderful vendors we met in the weeks to come!
