I have recently been brought into a group research effort on my Standlee line. It’s a big effort in research & it’s been amazing!!
As you can imagine we have a lot of different family & a plethora of documents, groupsheets, & analyses…dating into the 1600’s!
How do we share all this research? Dropbox! Individually sharing records takes up so much space in emails & on your computer, as well as very time-consuming. Like most things I’m leery of using anything online, none-the-less in group sharing. It usually gets so confusing.
But with Dropbox’s free service & FREE APP… Not only can you share 2GB of files & photos… You can take it anywhere with you!
It’s great being able to see what we are all looking at & knowing who has seen what; it brings us all up to speed easily at our own pace without losing our collections in the mumble jumble of emails & computer files. But adding to my arsenal on the go is perfect! Let’s face it, Ancestry.com doesn’t hold all our found records (not yet) & dragging our computers is sometimes too much… Here’s a great solution to taking it all with you on your next “hunt”! Just whip out your smartphone! :D
