Find Your Ancestors

using Your Kindle,Windows Phone 7, IPhone or IPad with a Kindle App

Amazon has introduced Kindle software for use on various devices and platforms, including Microsoft Windows, iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X, Android, webOS, and Windows Phone. Amazon also has a "Cloud Reader" to allow users to read, and purchase, Kindle books from a web browser. Additionally, Amazon released a "Kindle for PC" application in late 2009, which is now available as a free download for Windows 7, Vista, and XP.

The Kindle for PC application allows thousands of books to be read on a personal computer in color, WITH NO KINDLE UNIT REQUIRED. Amazon released a version for the Macintosh, "Kindle for Mac", in early 2010 and in June 2010 Amazon released a "Kindle for Android" version. In conjunction with the Android application release, versions for the Apple iPhone & the Apple iPad , and Blackberry cellphones also became available and in January 2011, Amazon released Kindle for Windows Phone 7.

Kindle DX, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Touch & Kindle Fire

Most of the better known genealogy websites (see below) appear the same on the Kindles as you're used to seeing them on your computer, just on a smaller screen. The Kindle Keyboard and Touch each have a 6" screen, the Fire 7" and the DX 9.7".You can turn them to "landscape mode" for a broader view of some screens, and once you've become accustomed to managing the smaller viewing space, you should be able to view any website fairly easily. Viewing is pretty much the same on the IPad and other tablets, with screens varying in size from 6" to approx. 14". Tablets offer convenience similar to Smart Phones & Kindles, but with a somewhat larger display.
