Research Ties – Booth 222

May 2nd, 2017 by National Genealogical Society Blog Editor

Easy to use for the novice, yet powerful enough for the professional, ResearchTies™ is a one-of-a-kind, searchable research log. No more combing through stacks of handwritten notes or print-outs! ResearchTies enables users to search and sort all objectives, searches, results, and to-do’s within seconds. In addition, users can record web links and upload images to facilitate quick and easy viewing of documents.

For those who are interested in collaborating and sharing their work, ResearchTies allows users to invite other subscribers to share the same log. Now you can work with others on a common project, and everyone can see the same log entries and digital documents. To share log information with those who do not have a ResearchTies account, produce a research log in PDF or Excel® format. Because this is an online program, sharing these reports electronically maintains active hyperlinks to the results of your research. Anyone receiving a copy of the report electronically can click on the links and see the documents. Also, because PDF files can be added to the sources on FamilySearch® Family Tree, it is now possible to share the full extent of your research with the general public. As more researchers share their quality research in online trees, we will be helping to improve the world’s genealogical data as a whole.

Come learn how research logs and ResearchTies can help you become a more effective and efficient researcher, as well as put you on the road to an organized, paperless office.

During the NGS Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina, join us for a class (S410) on Saturday morning at 8:00: “ResearchTies: Why Every Good Genealogist Needs a Quality Research Log,” and come visit with us at vendor booth #222. We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
