Improvements For Genealogy Software

Hello All -

You probably have guessed that I am big on genealogy software - I tend to talk about it quite a bit. On Roots Television there is a good presentation by Mark Tucker of www.thinkgenealogy.com.

It can be viewed here http://www.rootstelevision.com/players/player_rootstube3.php?bcpid=7250892001&bclid=505319645&bctid=1486890944

Mark has 10 good ideas about how genealogy software can be improved. I agree wholeheartedly on his "wishlist."

Just as an aside - Mark has a brilliant Genealogical Proof Standard map on his website. You can see it here http://www.thinkgenealogy.com/wp-content/uploads/Genealogy%20Research%20Map%20v2.pdf

This GPS map is worth printing out and keeping near you when you are doing your research.
Mark also has a slideshow about working with the GPS, which can be viewed here

Mark has done a good job of offering important resources on his website. In my view it would be voted as my website of the month - www.thinkgenealogy.com

I use a Macintosh computer. Most of the genealogy software is mde for a PC. I learned that after I bought some the first time.
