What I Use 2

Two years ago I listed the technology tools that aid in my genealogy hobby. I’ve decided to update the list.

Much hasn’t change. What has changed is that I’m no longer using Microsoft Windows. Family Tree Maker is available on the Mac, so that is my software of choice. I’ve also stopped using a video camera and am using a digital camera and an iPhone for HD video.

Here is my list:

* Hardware: MacBook Pro 15 in. running OSX Mountain Lion and Mac Pro running OS X Lion
* External storage: Portable hard drive
