EVERNOTE


EVERNOTE

I have been using this for a while now and I often wonder how I lived without it! Now my email inbox does not stay full, I simply email anything important to my Evernote account and delete the rest. Then I go to Evernote and find the notes and tag and move them to the correct notebook. It is soooo easy to find things that you put in Evernote by using tags and searching.


I use 7 notebooks to keep me organized. Everything goes into my inbox and from there I tag and move the notes to other notebooks. My other note books are To Do, Shannon Thomas Photography, Personal/Family, Cross Stitch, Reference and Share. The To Do notebook should be self explanatory. In this notebook I use the check boxes in my notes. I have a note for every month and I just add to it when things come up. The Shannon Thomas Photography is used for my photography business. I keep all emails and any other information in here until they are no longer needed and then they get moved to the Refrence notebook. The Personal/Family notebook holds medical info, household info, shopping lists, gift ideas, etc in there. Cross stitch is a big hobbie of mine so I had to have just one notebook for all my cross stitch stuff. There are free charts, thread lists, shopping lists, etc in there. You can put pdf files in Evernote also. The reference notebook holds everything else or the notes that are no longer needed in the other notebooks. The Share notebook holds any notes that I want to share with others on my Evernote page on the web. The best part is that you can use it on your desktop, on your phone, and on the web. You can get it from EVERYWHERE!!


Lots of people use Evernote and in many different ways for many different reasons. Here are two links that talk about how people use Evernote.




There is so much that you can do, you just have to give it a try!

If you already use or you give it a try let me know how it works for you!

The Great Genealogy Shape Up of 2018!

For most of 2017, I spent my genealogy time cleaning up my database in Legacy Family Tree.  I'm still working on cleaning up messes from when I first started my family tree.  For 2018, I plan to continue cleaning up my database.  I would also like to finish adding all Find A Grave information to my database as well.  
Find A Grave is a great place to find leads to research.  Legacy makes it very easy to find everyone in your database who do not have Find A Grave memorials.  

Click the drop-down arrow on the Find A Grave icon and it gives you the following options:



I selected create a list of people without a Find A Grave Memorial and I got a nice LONG list of people.  From this list, I have been able to find more ancestors to research and add to my database.
My other goal for 2018 is to find the people in my database who do not have a source {yes, I said without a source.  Gasp!} Legacy also makes it very easy to find these people.  You want to click on Search {in the image of the…

Goodbye Evernote, Hello OneNote

What?  I'm leaving Evernote behind!
As most of you know I have been a huge Evernote supporter from the beginning and I have had a paid membership from the beginning {until October 1st}.There has been a lot of talk about Evernote not lasting much longer because they have been making a lot of changes and letting people go.That got me thinking about what I would do if they did cease to exist.I started looking at all of my options and the best option, for me, is OneNote.I already have it on my computer and it is free.I can use OneNote on my desktop, laptop, phone, and table all for free.I can still use tags {a bit different than what I am use to but it works and I am finding that I really don't need that many tags}.I can still search for things and actually find what I am looking for.I can still clip stuff from the web using the OneNote clipper.I'm currently working on moving notes from Evernote to OneNote.It can be a bit tedious but the process has forced me to look at my note…
