Technology has changed the way we do research. Many Apps can be combined with traditional methods of genealogy research and play a role in preserving our family story for future generations. Use of these apps can be a way to involve multiple generations and increase cooperation between family members. This lecture will feature a selection of apps and their possible uses regarding genealogy such as cemetery documentation, data organization, family trees, mapping, photo albums, recipes, scanners, scrapbooks, voice recording and more. This webinar is part of the full-day MyHeritage genealogy seminar, broadcast live from MyHeritage headquarters in Or Yehuda, Israel.
