Digital Cameras and Genealogy

I thought I would blog about the use of digital cameras in genealogy as I find that having a digital camera is a vital item in a genealogist’s tool kit. If you are in a library and short of time, a digital camera enables you to record data quickly. Also, if you are not allowed to photocopy records, you can photograph them using a digital camera, without doing any damage.

If you want to record headstones inscriptions, then a digital camera is invaluable. When you see a monument or other artifact when you are out and about, you can capture it for posterity.

If you want to send images to family or friends, having a digital camera makes it easy to email them. You can upload them to your website, blog, flickr etc. You can also print them off.
