ancestry.com Tree To Go iPhone App Debuts

ancestry.com Tree To Go

Thanks to my cousin Midge Frazel of the Granite In The Blood blog for the heads up!  I checked the ancestry.com blog this morning and indeed they have announced their first mobile app.

Tree To Go is available for the iPhone and allows you to carry your ancestry.com family tree from their website with you.  This will be perfect for cemetery inventories and other field trips where a laptop or netbook just isn’t practical.  In addition, this could become a genealogist’s version of “baby pictures in the wallet” allowing you to show off your family to other family members.

Or strangers in an airport which is what I’ll be doing.  I’m getting ready for my trip to the 2nd Annual Arizona Family History Expo in Mesa, Arizona and the new Tree To Go app will keep me busy on the long flight!

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
