Historians describe the United States of America as a melting pot where people from countries all over the world have come together to become part of this country. Americans can trace their ancestry to immigrants from Europe, Asia, Africa, representing just about every nation. Many of us who have lived in the U. S. for several generations just think of ourselves as Americans and do not identify with the cultures that we came from. But a lot of people do still try to keep elements of their heritage so children remember where their ancestors came from. They serve ethnic foods, keep items that belonged to ancestors, and observe holidays the way their ancestors’ country did.
Many people just don’t know many details about where their families came from. They know that Great-Grandpa sailed to the U. S. from Ireland but don’t know why he came or what the names of his parents were. So people turn to genealogical resources to find out about their family’s history. They might travel to museums or historical research centers or browse to websites that let you research your family.
Genealogical researchers will compile information about people’s families so they can learn about ancestors. Often this info ends up being pages and pages of jumbled lists of names and occupations. Why not purchase bulk custom USB drives to compile information and then sell to people who want to research their families?
As a genealogist, you can do the hard work of looking through death records, examining lists of boat passengers, and browsing through lists of residents of a town in the 1890s. You can pick out the information about your client’s ancestors and even find out that his great-great-grandfather tried to hide the fact that he stole a horse. You can then type this information into Word documents and also save them as PDFs to load onto the flash drives. That way you can give someone a full collection of research about their family on a handy flash drive that they can plug into their computers.
They can do what they want with the information. They can easily search through documents to find specific names. They can print out parts that they want or a whole book of family documentation. They can order extra flash drives to share with their family members.
The genealogist can order flash drives that have the name of the genealogy group imprinted or engraved. He can then stockpile these to load people’s information onto and then sell them to those who come for research. But CFgear offers more options that he can take advantage. If a lot of family members want flash drives with all the genealogy information already on them, CFgear can prepare bulk USB drives and preload data. They can load files like Word docs and PDFs as well as design a custom layout.
