    How to Archive Family Keepsakes Kindle Edition Now Available

    HTArchiveFamilyKeepsakes Kindle cover

    Good news if you've looking for a Kindle edition of How to Archive Family Keepsakes. In addition to ePUB, Nook, and iBook editions, the Kindle edition of my book is now available at the Amazon store.

    Every author loves the news that their book is SOLD OUT, but it's even better to know that digital versions are available while the paperback is being reprinted. As a longtime Kindle fan, I'm excited to know that How to Archive Family Keepsakes: Learn How to Preserve Family Photos, Memorabilia and Genealogy Records  joins the Kindle list of fully-searchable, sync able, and portable ebooks.

    Why Go Digital?

    Buying digital versions of books, magazines, and journals is a great way to get started as a "Paper-Less Genealogist." Using born-digital documents cuts down on paper, filing supplies, and storage space. You also gain the ability to search the full-text of a book or article, annotate without permanently marking your copy, and make comments that can be shared via GoodReads or social media.

    Paperless or Paper-Less?

    Genealogists love paper, so going completely digital can be a scary idea. Instead, why not move toward less paper? Preserve your heirloom original documents, but make a conscious effort to create and care for less new paper. Try three easy baby-steps toward a digital life and watch your paper piles of everyday working documents dwindle from a mountain to a molehill.

    Baby Steps to Less Paper

    1. Choose Born-Digital books, magazines, and journals. Eliminate hardcopy clutter.

    2. Print to PDF and file documents in your computer filling system. Avoid printing paper copies of email, receipts, notes.

    3. Pick a Digital Birthday. Pick a date you can remember (birthday, tax day). Go digital from that date forward. You will know where to look -- filing cabinet or computer folders -- depending on the date of the item you need.
