In 2012, Ed Thompson created a new type of genealogy program. He felt that while there were a number of good genealogy programs for recording facts about our ancestors, he felt that he didn’t have any resources that would help him solve his research challenges. I can’t help but agree.
He needed to:
- Remember how his conclusions were formed
- Squeeze more information out of his sources
- See everything on one screen
And so he wrote Evidentia!
All of that sounds pretty good to me too! It would certainly help me with my Brown family research. I found the video below on the Evidentia website along with an offer for a 14 day free trial. I think I might just give it a whirl next weekend. Ed even has a series of video tutorials on his website which look as though they are on YouTube. I can queue them up later this week so I’m all up to speed by the time I download the program. If it works for me, then it is only $29.99 to buy and quite honestly, if it does help me sort out all the George Browns in Sheffield in 1815, I’d pay ten times that amount!
I will post a review of the software once I’ve put it through its paces.
