Genealogy on Your Kindle Fire!
Just found a link to this article on Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter (EOGN) points to an easy way to carry your genealogy with you without having a computer. Use your Kindle or other electronic devices.
Here is part of the short article that has several links for more information: GenBlog by
"A few months ago, the company that developed Families [designed to work with the software Legacy Family Tree] released GedFamilies (Android, iOS, $7.99). From what I can tell (based on the product description, screenshots, and the “test drive” I took on Amazon) it is nearly identical to Families. The big difference between the two apps is that Families only works with Legacy Family Tree databases, while GedFamilies works with a GEDCOM file. That basically means that if you use ANY genealogy database software that can generate a GEDCOM 5.5.1 file, you can use the GedFamilies app and have your family tree on your Kindle Fire. Just like the Families app, you will need to download and install a syncing program on your computer."
