Digital Writing Tools for Genealogists - free webinar now online by Lisa Alzo

If you have been considering writing about your family history, you need to watch the recording of Lisa Alzo's webinar, Digital Writing Tools for Genealogists. Telling your family's story just got a lot easier thanks to a number of cloud-based notetaking and writing tools and apps you can access from home, your netbook, iPad, tablet, or even your smartphone. I'm personally super-excited to use the Scrivener software she mentioned. With all of the digital tools Lisa presented, we no longer "have an excuse to procrastinate" the writing of our family's story. One viewer commented, "I was always afraid of the writing process, but it now seems possible." Terrific presentation Lisa!
