Genealogy has been a practice of mankind since times immemorial. Whether it was for the sake of inheritance insurance or pride in racial lineage, genealogy has come in handy for a return to one’s roots. But today the proper question to ask is whether this particular field of study is an art form or new science?
We all know that in the past genealogy was used to climb one’s family tree and go all the way back into the lives of one’s ancestors. But that is not the only function that this science in the making serves today.
Besides finding the links that connect you with your prototypes, genealogy can be used to gather all your data in terms of its history and archival integrity. If you collect information on family history and other groups of people connected by filial ties, it will do you good to get a little help from your electronic companions. The computer, smartphone and a number of other gadgets, gizmos and contraptions can make your job an easier one.
The huge amounts of data that goes back hundreds and sometimes even thousands of years in the past must be kept track of. The various family ties through marriage, birth and even adoption are the stuff of which genealogy is made.
Ultimately when you have records that are so old and defunct that the very age and time blends in with mythic eras, you have to get a little scientific about it. A backup system is of the essence. This means a solid database that contains many gigabytes of information stored in compact form.
Among the things you definitely need to save are: unique documents, pictures, letters and very important textual resources. Some last minute additions include: favorite materials and anything that could be lost through carelessness. And of course there are a few things that you may not need to backup.
Ultimately you will be the final person who makes decisions as to what data to store and what data to delete. Whether it is collected info over 24 hours, the previous seven days or even a month, you are the human agency that decides what remains in the circuitry and what goes out the memory bank.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
