The Promise of Technology

Technology continues to make it easier to keep track of and share data. Computer programs can help you determine the gaps in your family history. Just a few years ago, genealogy was done by hand with charts painstakingly drawn for each person wanting a copy. Shared information was often incomplete and completely lacking documentation because the person disseminating the information ran out of energy before getting it all sent off to a distant relative. Writers promised to send more details soon but never found the time to complete the task. Copy machines have changed all that. Copiers are everywhere; even residents of very small towns usually have access to one somewhere nearby. Now there is little excuse for sharing undocumented or partial data.
