I tend to think of myself as a pretty tech-savvy genealogist. I'm no Dick Eastman or Thomas MacEntee by any means, but I love doing genealogy on my iPhone and iPad, and I keep all my findings on my laptop, and make at least monthly backups to an external hard drive that I keep safe at a location away from my house. I try to keep up on at least some of the apps and websites out there.
I recently heard about Evidentia software, and decided to check it out. This is a different sort of genealogy program, in that it doesn't track your ancestors and print pedigree charts or family group sheets. Rather, it collects sources, records the claims those sources make about people, and helps you draw conclusions about the evidence and information presented. I have a couple of ancestors I'd really like to try this on, because I'm not entirely sure how I know what I know, and that it's been sufficiently proven. This would be a good way to review the evidence and see how it lays out, what conflicts and what doesn't. This is what it looks like:
