Tech Tools for Technologically-Challenged Genealogists

Dropbox Graphic


Chris Staats, on his blog, posted a piece titled New Presentation Idea: Tech Tools for Technologically-Challenged Genealogists.

His post reminds us of all the non-genealogy specific tools we use and increasingly these tools are internet-based or involve some form of newer technology ...

He lists out 10 tools that he uses (Dropbox, Transcription, etc).  For a recent class I taught, I expanded his list to include some tools that I use in the categories for some of what he mentions.  For example, instead of Snagit, I used 5 Clicks for years until my new computer came equipped with a “Snipping Tool” which works well enough.  

What non-genealogical techie tools would you add to the list?
