One of the best things I ever did to advance my genealogy is go to two computer monitors. I know that sounds a bit odd but I can’t tell you how much time and frustration this has saved me. In the My Space blog post you can see my laptop with the attached second monitor and a couple of people asked me about it so I thought I would talk a bit about it.
I have had my computer set up like this for about 5 years now. Once I did it I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t done it before. You can have your genealogy program up on one screen and a document on FamilySearch (or whatever) on the other other. You can type the information into your genealogy program at the same time you are looking at it instead of minimizing and maximizing different windows back and forth. Or, you can have your genealogy program up on one screen and Facebook up on the other :)
