I have just downloaded a couple of new pieces of software that I find interesting. One I have used and one I intend to start using tomorrow. The one I have used is called GenScriber #GenScriber and it is #FreeGenealogySoftware . This is a wonderful tool. It allows you to pull in a jpg of a document (i.e. census sheet) downloaded from #FamilySearch, etc. and had templates for the fields available by year. The image can be magnified as needed to make out the enumerators handwriting. Once completed, the work can be saved as a CSV file. The information can also be exported as a pdf among other formats. I found this to be a great tool. Much easier than trying to write the information down on a form while looking at the screen.
I have one #ImprovementSuggestion and that is to have the ability to enter the census header information as well as the line item information. Other than that, I find #GenScriber to be a nice addition. Thank you #DickEastman for the article on the software!
Now for the second piece of software, #Evidencia. As I said, I have not started to use it yet, but I am a bit perturbed with the vendor since they sent me an email to sign up for a class on how to use the software. When I click on the sign up button,it takes me to a page on their web site that says there are no events. Really bad form. If there is nothing to offer, do not sent out an offer!!
