A Look at Cloud Computing – One Researcher’s View of Computing in the Cloud


Most of us have more than one device that we can use for searching the web and communicating with friends and family. Many of us have other family members who would like to see our genealogy research. 

The ‘Cloud’ offers us a way to share and transfer information with a far greater ease than ever before. It enables us to collect and store the data associated with family history. Plus it gives us a way of sharing and collaborating with other people all over the world, in real-time if we want.

In this tutorial Graham Walter explains how he makes use of Cloud tools in his family research.
