Genealogical Tech Wish List

The RootsTech Conference of February 2011 really made me start thinking of the way Genealogy will be researched and taught in the future. I pondered if I was ready to keep up with this aspect of genealogy. Could I afford to do it? I have yet to buy that IPod for downloading podcasts, and now I have so much more that I want to add to my list of technical things to buy. Here are some of the items I am adding to my wish list that can help me in my family research.

Other items I would love to have: Cell Phone upgrade, Access to more genealogical databases, Digital Camera, iPad, Back- up Programs and Scanner (that is small enough to take to library).

As much as I would love the above wish list items, I am careful to remember the basics of genealogical research. I think the use of microfilm, going to the library to research a book and manually taking notes of our ancestors versus the computer should be skills we should never forget.

What is on YOUR wish list to help you keep up with the technical side of Genealogy? Come let us know in the Genealogy Forum!
