Evernote and Genealogy

In July of 2013 I did a post about Evernote called How I Use Evernote for My Genealogy.  Since then some things have changed.

At one point I moved to OneNote.  Why?  I'm not quite sure.  It may have thought that it was maybe better than Evernote but in the end Evernote won and I switched back.  For me Evernote has better searching capabilities and I am all about making things easier.  I think I also spent too much time making things pretty in OneNote.

I reorganized my genealogy stuff in Evernote and changed names of notes to have everything fit better for me and I am LOVING how much easier it is to find things.  I still need to make better use of my tags so that is the next step in my Evernote redo.


Notebooks and stacks were rearranged, some deleted some new, to better organize my notes.


Notes were renamed in a way that made better sense and put my notes in alphabetical order.

You can find my shared notebook here.  There is also a Google+ hangout with Tessa Keough and I on the Legacy Virtual Users Group on Google+ where we discuss Evernote and genealogy.

As always if you have any questions shoot me an email at sthomas51004@gmail.com.

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

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

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done.  I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch. Enjoy your week! Happy Stitching!!
