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.
