A crop of new tools, resources and upgrades may be the miracle products your family history research needs to flourish.
Take a look at your genealogy to-do list. When you see "Organize correspondence," "Print out family tree charts" or "Search 1901 British census," do you feel a bit overwhelmed? Don't let the enormity of your tasks keep you from tackling that list. Several companies have come out with new software programs and research tools to make your genealogical chores more manageable.
After all the phone calls, letters, e-mails and faxes you've exchanged during your genealogy search, it might be tough to keep everything straight. Whom do you need to call? Who owes you a letter? When did you last hear from that library? GENContacts is a new correspondence management software program that's supposed to help you manage all your genealogy communication and create reports by contact, category and project. It works with Macs or Windows and costs $59.95. To order, call (800) 443-6325 or visit <www.everton.com>.
