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 is my Genealogy To Do notebook in my Genealogy stack.  You can see the list of reminders above the notes in this notebook.  The same cogwheel is there for you to sort your reminders.


You can also search for notes with reminders using Evernote's powerful search feature.  To find any note with a reminder that has been completed in the last 7 days you would use reminderDoneTime:day-7.  In the image below is my one note completed in the last 7 days.  You can see the date that the reminder was completed by the alarm icon; the date has a line through it (the green box to the right of image below.)

reminderOrder:*             -- gives all notes with a reminder
reminderTime:day          -- gives all notes with a reminder for today
reminderTime:day+7     -- gives all notes with a reminder in the next 7 days


I have not used Evernote's search feature very much with reminders so I am sure there are other ways to search for reminders that contain certain tags etc.

My next post will be about viewing your reminders on your calendar...I LOVE this!

Until next time...happy ancestor hunting!

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.



US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134.   
I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…

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.}
