Genealogy Files Online

  • Do you know the difference between a file upload and download?
  • Can you unzip a file?
  • Do you know where the files you download actually go?
  • Do you know where to find file archives of genealogy texts and utilities online?

If you don't know the answers to all of the questions above, don't feel badly--you're not alone. File transfers, archivers, and file archive sites can be confusing subjects, but help is at hand! This lesson will walk you through the basics and hopefully give you the confidence to tackle downloading files on your own.
