As the Mind Skips a Beat - Technology Keeps the Process Moving
I know your heart may skip a beat, your mind may slip a cog, but my mind literally skipped for joy when I learned of ways to put less strain on my brain. Technology can help when those of you who are anxious to trace your family find yourself feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of not only learning to search new sources, but now new processes and computer programs. Yet to relieve the pressure and restore your sanity—even with huge projects, technology can keep the process moving.
