Evernote Reminders...Part 2

You can find my first post here:   How I Process Death Certificates Using Evernote Reminders To day we will look at different ways to sort and view your reminders. If you click on Notes this will give you all of your notes in Evernote (#1 in the image above) and it will also give you a list of all of your reminders (#3 in the image above).  If you click on the cogwheel (#2 in the image above) you will find your options for sorting your reminders (see the image below.) I believe the default is to sort them by notebook but you can also sort by reminder date (in image below) In the image below they are sorted by upcoming reminders in each notebook. In the image below they are sorted by reminder date showing all upcoming reminders but not by each individual notebook.  This is the way I prefer to see mine.  You can also choose to show any recently completed reminders. You can also view your reminders from within individual notebooks.  The image below

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun on Sunday

From Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings  : Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music): 1)  Dana Leeds on the Enthusiastic Genealogist blog asks " Did/Do Your Children Know Any of Their Great-Grandparents? " 2)  I thought that would be a great Saturday Night Genealogy Fun question - so please share your response with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook or Google+ post. 3)  For extra credit, or in case the answer is "No," then please answer the question for yourself, or your parents. Luckily for my son, Hunter, he knows 5 of his great grandparents!  My mother's parents, my father's dad and step mom and my dad's mom.  He is very close with his great grandfathers and his grandfather; he spends a lot of time hunting with them.  (I hope he knows how lucky he is!!) My maternal grandparents with their great grandchildren! (Hunter is in the back) I was also lucky e

Spreadsheet, Evernote, or Legacy To Do List???

I have been trying to figure out what to do about my research log.  Should I keep it in a spreadsheet, in Evernote or in my Legacy program?? I tried a spreadsheet... but I don't really like it.  Then I tried a Legacy To Do List... but I'm not sure if I like this or not.  Here is what I have in Evernote... I like my Evernote research log / notes the best.  My issue is do I keep using Evernote and making a research log for every single person even when they only have a little bit of information (mainly those with only one entry)??   Maybe I'm putting too much thought in to this!  Why change what is working??   What do you do??
