How technology revolutionized family history work in recent decades

Summary

In the summer of 1987, the LDS Church's genealogical library quietly celebrated the conversion of its last catalog card to a computer file. Thirty years later, that little milestone seems like a footnote compared to more significant technological advancements in family history work, such as the launching of websites with databases that contain billions of searchable records.

Truly, technology has taken ancestral research to unimaginable heights, "completely erasing and redrawing the map," according to David E. Rencher, chief genealogical officer for FamilySearch International.
