By now you know that I am a bit of a techno dweeb. I use my computer all the time but I know that I don’t take advantage of all of the technology that is available out there. I look at my cyberfriend Thomas MacEntee with awe and jealousy. He knows more about the high tech aspect of genealogy than anyone else I know. Sometimes I think I might be missing out on some things that could help me be a more effective researcher. In the meantime, I rely on my steno pads.
Yes, I still make paper notes. I take my steno pads everywhere I go. Unlike Thomas and the like I don’t use my smart phone (I don’t even have a smart phone) to record my notes along the way. I have a steno pad in my purse, in my car, in my laptop case and several on my desk. I just love those things. I am going to cemetery today to snap a photo for a Find-A-Grave request. My steno pad will be going with me because you never know what I might need to write down.
