Q4: Do you think that the #genealogy world is overloaded with tech? Do we have too much to do the research effectively? #genchat

 
imagenelleFamTreeFeb 15, 2:28pm via tchat.io

A4: I’ve used very little. At times would like to learn more, but a bit overwhelmed and don’t even know where to start #genchat

imagekmjordan73Feb 15, 2:28pm via tchat.ioA4: However, not all tech is for everyone – pick and choose the tech that works for YOUR #genealogy(or whatever your purpose) #genchat

imageSeekingSurnamesFeb 15, 2:28pm via TweetDeckQ4: No. As with anything you need to manage it. No need to have all the bells and whistles, just the ones that work for you. #genchat

imagebetsympls612Feb 15, 2:28pm via Tweetbot for Mac

A4: Plus, I think we all gravitate toward the tools that feel the most comfortable. Which helps cull the tech herd. #genchat

imageDigiDeenaFeb 15, 2:29pm via TweetChat powered by oneQubeA4: There are too many disparate repositories to store all our stuff: photos, documents, texts, lists, etc. #genchat
