My friend Lisa Alzo queried Ol’ Myrt and a number of other genealogy writers for input about trends we see coming down the pike in the world of genealogy. She plans to work the feedback we provided into an article for Family Chronicle magazine. However, her request did not preclude the cross posting of my thoughts on the subject here in my blog over the next few days. I look forward to reading what my colleagues think the future holds for family historians when Lisa’s article goes to press.
In response to What do you foresee happening in the field in the next 5 to 10 years?, Ol’ Myrt replied:
MORE FLASH DRIVE TECHNOLOGY
Currently RootsMagic allows for running it’s program on a flash drive to access one’s database while visiting a research facility whose computers don’t have RM preinstalled. This will become main stream technology, just as we once thought adding a photo to an ancestor’s file in our genealogy programs was remarkable.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
