There are many electronic helpers to keep us organized and efficient in our generational family tree building.
I utilize about 6 different electronic research sites to initiate and maintain records about loved ones who have transitioned a those of us still on earth.
I also love the preservation of records and my handwriting in books creates a special record for future generations to hopefully cherish, evaluate and aid in the ease of family research.
Keeping handwritten records is also a great defense against others invading your family trees with inaccurate information. The family tree invasion is more commonplace today and new restrictions are being established to maintain privacy and integrity of the research.
