Scared

Wow!! I just got home from work a little while ago...it was raining so hard that I could barely see and all the roads are just a mess. I had to take a detour...such a round about way to get home let me tell you...took me about an hour compared to what takes me about 25 mins. normally. The creek behind our house is moving really really fast and it is smaking into the bridge that goes over it. It sure is making some really loud sounds! A tree crashed into it a while ago. So far the power is on...obviously...but who knows for how long! I dont know if Jason will be able to get home from work...he still has a half an hour to go. I called him and ended up crying on the phone because this creek really has me freaked out! It is so strange...I keep getting the flash light and shining it out the back door to see where it is...not like is going to go down or anything...I guess I just keep checking to make sure it is not at the back door. I just keep rambling on and on because I know I will go check it again soon and then just walk all over the house about 50 times...that is not going to help anything! But...I will have some good flood pictures tomorrow...like that is supposed to make me feel any better! I know I feel much better once Jason gets home from work! I need to calm down...just breath deep...nice clensing breths...nope not working...lol

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

How to add the Genealogy Notebook to your Evernote

I've recently had some questions about how to join my Genealogy Evernote notebook so here are the steps.  If you have questions please let me know at sthomas51004@gmail.com or leave a comment.



1. Click this link and the box should open to join the notebook.


​ You will then find the note book in your Evernote program.  I use the Windows desktop version. To copy specific notes to your notebooks to use them :

1.  Locate the notebook and right click the note you want to save in your Evernote account. 2.  Click copy to notebook. 3.  In the next window that opens select the note book you want to copy to. {I copy to my inbox notebook and make whatever changes and rename the note then move it to the correct notebook.



Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow! {There is also an update to the original post here where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work. 
I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards.
I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958, at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post.}
