Genealogy: Computer Or Paper? Research Genealogical

I'd say in general it's a good idea to keep important documents in multiple places. I knew a family who kept a copy of all their genealogy on a thumb drive in their 72hr kit.

I first started on paper and still continue that, but now I digitize everything and keep it on multiple formats including online.

I don't think I mind entering it on a computer but after I like a print out. I also like a pedigree chart to look through afterwards.

Name: Keeper

Comments: Tracking records is so much easier when its done with computers but still the scrap book has to come out at some point and I honestly love both methods of keeping my genealogy.

Genealogy Computer Paper

I would be lost if I did not have the computer at my disposal for this. Its easy doing it on paper when you have the main line only but when you get into cousins and stuff it can be very confusing!

Genealogy Computer Paper

Computer of course. You can change any genealogical information easily and then recompile everything on the fly. You can also print it out nicely if that's what you want.
