Paperless Genealogy Guide
Know How To Go Paperless With Your Genealogy Research. Find And Access From Anywhere…
You want to MAXIMIZE your progress on your genealogy research
…and you don't have to be a computer wizard to make that happen.
We'll explain exactly what to do and how to do it in friendly plain English.
How do I create a system that is
consistent, logical, and works?...
How do I set myself up for success?...
How do I find the document that I need?...
These are all actual questions we've received from customers and readers…
In fact, these are concerns that many people have when going paperless, and it's understandable.
At least with paper we can hold, touch, and see it. We've been filing it away for years and years. We feel like we can find it when we need to. (Whether that is true or not is a different topic!)
With electronic documents, it's harder to wrap our head our head around it. How do we organize and find it if we can't see the physical paper?
Now it's our turn to ask you a few questions…
- What if you could have access to the research you need right when you need it, from wherever you are?
- What if you could jump right to the document that you need with just a few taps of the keyboard?
- What if you knew the most efficient ways to capture paper and make it electronic, either at home or at the library/repository?
- What if you knew the best ways to make sure your electronic documents were safe and secure?
What if you knew the best ways to make sure your electronic documents were safe and secure?
That's Exactly Why We Created The
Paperless Genealogy Guide For You
Over the years, awesome DocumentSnap readers have been asking Brooks about going paperless with genealogy. While his dad is big into genealogy, technology is his specialty, not researching family history.
At the same time, Janine has been going on research trips and attending genealogy conferences, going more and more paperless every year.
We decided to team up, pool our knowledge, and create a Guide so that you can get a jumpstart and learn the things we wished we had known at the start.
Paperless is one of those things where you learn it once (and it's not hard!), and it pays you back for years and years and years with streamlined research and access to information.
The Paperless Genealogy Guide also includes our Paperless Genealogy Checklist. It walks you through what actions you need to take to get going.
