Handheld PC News

Posted 2 years ago | News | Chris Tilley 0 comments

If you've ever dove into the world of ancestral research, then you may have found yourself laid low in the darkened halls of your local or national library searching for information on some or other "long dead maybe".

As with so many things in the world of CE, your Handheld PC has you covered in this regard. In the latest of our posts on those reclusive 'still trading' software developers. This week, we bring you Pocket Genealogist.

As the name implies, Pocket Genealogist is a handy utility for storing your family history research on the go. The app boasts generational views, tree views and multiple database support - including the ability to read database format from other software. It also supports GPS and multimedia import/viewers for the scanning and archiving of records data while in the field.

Last updated in 2017, the Pocket Genealogist version 4 app is available for Windows CE 5.0+ Handheld PC devices along with Windows Mobile. For (even more) legacy devices, Pocket Genealogist version 3 from 2012 can still be purchased with support for H/PC Pro and higher as well as the Palm-sized PC and Pocket PC. The app is available as a shareware trial and for licenced users comes in two flavours. A basic version and an advanced version which adds synchronisation and import functionality with a wide range of third party genealogy apps for the PC. The basic version costs $20 USD (£15.15, €18.13, ¥2388 JPY est.), while the advanced $35 USD (£26.56, €31.73, ¥4180 JPY est.) paid via PayPal.
