Genealogy for ipod

Genealogy Programs for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

This blog post comes to you courtesy of Dick Eastman from Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, and his policy of allowing others “to copy the articles from Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter Standard Edition and to publish them elsewhere”.
I was part way through my own blog on the various genealogy apps available for the iPhone, iPod and iPad, when Dick’s post on this topic made it’s way to my inbox.
As his is far more comprehensive than I could ever so, I’ve decided to go with it!! So, thank you Dick for taking the time to not only review each App, but write about them too.
If you own an iPad, iPhone or an iPod Touch, wouldn’t you like to carry your genealogy database with you? Not only can you do that, but you even have many different genealogy programs to choose from. All of them can be downloaded and installed within seconds from the iPhone App Store. However, you do need to choose carefully as several of the programs will only work in conjunction with specific desktop genealogy programs. Others work only with online databases.
Genealogy Programs for iPad Owners
The following programs are designed for the iPad and will display in high resolution on the iPad’s larger screen:
* Reunion for the iPad allows you to view, navigate, search, and edit your information on the go. Yes, that’s “edit.” You can make changes to your database on the iPad, then take it back to the Macintosh and perform a sync function. All the changes you made on the iPad will be copied back to your family file on the Macintosh.  You can add people, document new information, add pictures, and make corrections to your data on the iPad. Those changes will later be added to the Reunion database on the Macintosh.You can learn more in an online video at or read my earlier review at
Reunion for iPad is available for US$14.99 from the App Store. For more information, visit
