Family Tree Firsts Post 3

While I was gone my third post at Family Tree was posted.  You can check it out here.  Leave me a message there, or here, and tell me what you think so far.

I did really enjoy the 2 power courses I took through Family Tree University.  They were just the right size for an evening (or afternoon) and really got you started down the correct paths.  I really enjoyed the second on on immigration with the real people examples; I am a sucker for true story things.

The iPad has been wonderful too!   If you have a favorite app, or tool, that you like to use let me know.  Slowly I am building a repritoire of items to be used with my genealogy.  In no particular order I am really enjoying:  Penultimate, Evernote, GoodReader, Ancestry, NPR, and my book readers (iBook, Kindle, and nook).  I am sure the list will grow.

  1. Hellooo Shannon from Down Under. I am really enjoying my iPad as well and will look up those apps you mentioned. I feel like such a beginner with this tool but it's all good fun huh?

  2. I have become addicted to it! Luckily my husband was given for work so he has been helping me set it up and make it useful. The best part is discovering books on online that I can now take with me to read. Sometimes I pull up a book on my iPad and use the bookmarks and highlight function to get me to the parts I need while typing on the laptop.
