Good morning! Today is a tutorial day – how to get the most out of a Kindle book for genealogy research! Remember there is a free Kindle app that will let you read anything purchased from Amazon’s Kindle store on your Ipad or Iphone – if you don’t have a Kindle.
I have brought up my St. Rose Catholic Church Baptisms on my Ipad to give you a demonstration. Once you click on the book from your Kindle or app you will see the cover photo of the book.
Then the actual records start – alphabetically by last name – marriages would be listed alphabetically by the grooms last name. Notice that many of the records give not only the date of baptism, but also the date of birth. Parents are also listed, the maiden name of the mother when known.
But with so many records how do you find the one you want? Or, are you looking for the mother’s name?
I know many of you are pros with the new technology, but I have had several questions about this. Of course, this works the same whether it is a list of baptisms, marriages or gravestones! Happy researching!
