Cloud Computing – one Family Researcher’s Perspective

In a time where many of us have more than one computing device, as well as other family members who would like to see our genealogy research, the cloud offers us a way to share and transfer information with a far greater ease than previously available.

“The Cloud” is something often referred to but not necessarily always understood. It not only offers us a way to collect the data associated with family history but also to share and collaborate with other people all over the world, in real-time if we want.

This talk is how one family researcher makes use of cloud tools in his family research.
