On thing we talked about was a way to better collaborate with each other and how we could better share our genealogy files with each other. I had the idea of using Dropbox. We both have free Dropbox accounts right now, but I suggested we get a "Family Dropbox" subscription so we can store all our photos, documents, stories and any other genealogy document we want to share with each other. My dad's cousin that that was such a great idea!
For those of you who may not know what Dropbox is, it is a great way to store, backup and share files on your computer with anyone you want. All you have to do is add their email to the folders you want to share with others and immediately they will be able to access all those great documents you have found in your genealogy research. You can download your own free 2GB account by clicking this link:

One of my tasks this weekend is to set up this "Family" account. Before I do, I need to go through and organize my genealogy files better! I know, I should already have everything organized, but I admit I have been a little messy with all my files lately... :P
Thank you Linda and Vonda for coming up and collaborating our genealogy together!! I look forward to the next time we can get together again!
