Welcome to GENEALOGY NEXT —Technology & Genealogy, a blog by Origins Genealogy Services and Joe Mann. A little introduction of what’s to come: I’ve always had a deep and abiding interest in technology, the internet and gadgets. I also have a passion for genealogy, so this blog is mostly about the intersection of tech and family history. However, I also reserve the right to occasionally throwback to bygone eras when the coolest gadget was a horse. Fasten your seatbelt (or hold onto the saddle horn) and enjoy!
