What’s New in Technology

by Ed Rosenthal

Ed Rosenthal will present his very popular annual survey of emerging technologies. Sharing of the insights he gains from keeping tabs on new developments in the computing and digital imaging scenes will provide us all with a glimpse of what new tools will soon be available to leverage in our favorite obsession — genealogy!

Ed Rosenthal has served three terms as president of CAGGNI and has been doing family research for over 20 years with Family Tree Maker and recently tracking his DNA. Ed has presented his research during his family’s 150th and 160th reunions in Germany. Ed is employed by PepsiCo International in Chicago and is responsible for managing the planning of the deployment activities of SAP in South America, Europe and Asia. Ed has held similar positions with Rockwell, Motorola and NEC with over 30 years of experience directing engineering and software projects.

CAGGNI (The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to effectively using technology and the internet in support of their research activities.  

Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest, including software, tools, techniques and methodologies. Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for computer and genealogy issues and internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership. 

A wide variety of genealogy software packages are used by the members as well online trees and database websites. We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps and other ways to share our family histories.
