ADD ON ANNOUNCEMENT - POCKET GENEALOGIST
The handheld computer revolution is here! They are everywhere, and they are
not just glorified appointment books anymore. Through the wonders of modern
electronics handheld PC's are changing the way genealogists do research...
entire family will usually fit comfortably inside and be available at the
of a stylus.
We are e*d to introduce Pocket Genealogist, a program designed to work
Windows CE devices. These include Compaq iPAQ (one of the coolest handheld
devices ever) and other PocketPC's, Palm-Size PC's (Not 3Com Palm-Pilot),
Handheld Pro, and Handheld PC's. Pocket Genealogist is currently at version
and allows data "viewing" only. Even with this level of functionality it is
great way to take your family information with you on research trips. You'll
love it! Coming up in May, however, Pocket Genealogist will come in a new
version 2.0 with an Advanced edition.
Version 2 Advanced is a much more powerful program than its predecessor and
will support direct Legacy import (no more GEDCOMs) along with note editing
eventual data entry and editing together with 2-way synchronization between
itself and your Legacy family files.
Your research trip routines are about to change. No more lugging your laptop
around, chaining it to table legs and hoping it (and the table) will be
when you return from getting a book or searching through a roll of
Your data is in your pocket and ready for viewing, editing, and additions at
any time. When you get back home, just load the changes back into your
family file on your desktop computer, and smile...
