Do you work from multiple devices? Laptop, desktop, work computer, home computer, smartphone, iPad? Learn how to utilize the free tools at Google Drive and Google Docs to help keep your genealogy research organized. You can create research logs with Google Sheets, transcribe records into Google Docs, add document links to records you have saved within your Google Drive files and share your work with other genealogists. The comment feature is a powerful collaborative tool that allows you to give and receive feedback from others. Upload your image files, scanned records, and saved research documents to Google Drive to access them from any device. Sync your devices to back up your precious research online. Search through your Google Drive to easily find documents. No longer will your research documents be scattered in dusty file folders, desktop computers, and under-the-bed boxes. Putting all your research in one place will help you find what you need and make more progress.
