Here is your assignment:

1)  
Answer these questions in my survey about your genealogy resources and usage:

a)  Which genealogy software programs for your computer do you use?


Roots Magic
b)  Which online family trees have information submitted by you - in either a separate online tree (e.g., Ancestry Member Tree) or a universal (collaborative) online tree (e.g., WikiTree)?
  

Ancestry, WikiTree, MyHeritage.com and FamilySearch
c)  For which subscription genealogy record providers (e.g., Ancestry) do you have a subscription?

Family Search, NARA, CastleGarden.org, Find A Grave, Billion Graves, HeritageQuest Online, UsGenWeb, 
e)  How much time do you spend each week doing actual genealogy research online?  [Note:  not reading, or social networking, but actual searching in a record provider].  Estimate an average number of hours per week.


I will admit to twelve hours (it is probably more........).

Average of four hours a month.
i)  How much time do you spend each month on genealogy education (e.g., reading books and periodicals, attending seminars, conferences, workshops, webinars, etc.)?   Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.
