Internet Genealogy magazine: Feb/March 2013

As Lisa Alzo writes in her front page profiled article 10 Time Management Tools for Genealogists in the Feb/March issue of Internet Genealogy magazine, the ten tools listed don't even begin to scratch the surface of all the applications available. The article is a useful start.
Time is the most precious of natural resources and time management "the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity" something we all endeavour to do.
Of the ten tools listed I'd heard of two before, various Google apps including Google calendar, and Remember the Milk but only because of the catchy title. All but one, FHNotebook, are generic - as useful for the non-genealogist as the genealogist. Lisa writes its similar to Evernote, the topic of a second article she authors in this issue.
Tony Bandy, another regular contributor, authors three articles, The Historic New Orleans Collection, Heading for Freedom and, Pan Am: More Than Just a Flight.
There's Australian content with NLA Newspapers: An Invaluable Australian Resource by Tasmania-based Gabrielle Morgan and British content in Are Your British Deceased Online? by your's truly.
For Canadian content there's a back page column by Dave Obee carefully astride the fence on attending conferences in person or via remote feeds.
