Although I love the computer for finding genealogical information, I still have to print whatever it is that I find of use. My husband laughs and says that things just aren't "real" to me until I print it. I agree with him - I get more out of sitting in a chair with a cup of coffee and my stacks of print outs than I do on the computer. There is an element of permanency to paper that is not there with digital materials.

I have digital and paper copies of a lot of things too. I think that comes from how I learn at Uni because I learn best by writing stuff down. I much rather prefer reading physical documents than reading them online. That way I can highlight & scribble notes on them. I do the same with my genealogy. If I've found a document online, such as a census record, I'll save it on my computer, print it out and make notes on it if I need to.

Yep!
I feel like part of the reason that more young people aren't into genealogy is because young people have this very real unwillingness to do anything "uncool." If your friends aren't doing it, then it must be weird, and if it'...

Excellent post!
 
Learning: How to Be Wrong
So when you hit the online scene for genealogy, you will see all sorts of tutorials and guides for how to do things the "right" way. Where to start on your German research, a YouTube video on to use Evernote for genealogy, a seminar on source citations and ...
