What I Use for What I Do ~




Thomas MacEntee over at GeneaBloggers has a meme called What I Do. Thomas says,

you basically list what you use in terms of technology to either run your genealogy business or pursue your family history as a hobby.


Here is what I use~

  • Virus Protection: McAfee
  • Spyware: McAfee
  • File cleaner: none
  • Printer: Canon Pixma MP510 all in one printer, scanner, copier, absolutely love it, only thing better would be a larger bed for 12x12 scrapbook papers.
  • Phone: Verizon LG enVtouch (would love a "Droid" but happy with my enVtouch at the moment).

  • Mobile Device: Phone above
  • Music Media: iPod 30GB older  (love music)
