CityViews 1/31/12: Genealogy 3.0

Play

Segment 1:

Finding out how many people are on your family tree is becoming much more than compiling a list of names and dates. Cloud computing, geo-mapping and social networks are making it easier to swap .pdfs and store data. And Youtube and digital audio services are allowing people to record their own stories in new ways. On Tuesday, we take a look at how technology is changing the way family history is preserved and researched.

Guests:

  • Eric Shoup, Ancestry.com
  • Lisa Madison, Storykeep
  • Pat Richley-Erickson, DearMYRTLE’s Genealogy Blog

 

The Rootstech Family History & Technology Conference is coming to Salt Lake City, Feb 2-4, at the Salt Palace Convention Center. More information at www.rootstech.org.
