Throw away your Internet cables: We'll show you how the wireless Web can boost your research prowess on the road.
No matter where you go — your living room, backyard, local library or ancestral homeland-you can do genealogy research. All you need is a wireless Internet connection, a mobile computing device and an on ramp (aka access point) to the information superhighway. So hop in your Gadgetmobile — we'll help you sort through the high-tech mumbo jumbo and inspect the benefits of getting “unwired.”
Why even consider going wireless? Suppose you're at your annual family reunion. You're chatting with Uncle Ernie about Great-great-grandpa Bert's travels to America. You tell him you finally found Bert's immigration details on the Castle Garden Web site <castlegarden.org>, which shows Bert came to the United States from Ireland in 1871. Ernie disagrees: “My father told me Bert came through Ellis Island, so he would've arrived after 1892.”
