"Portable Genealogy - You Can Take It With You..." is for genealogists who want to take their family history with them when they travel or visit research repositories. It looks at synchonizing your file between computers using programmes that support Android and iOS devices and third-party options to use with GEDCOM copies of your file. A two-page handout covers many utilities which can move files from desktops to handheld devices.
