How Evernote Helps with Database Consistency


A quick thank you to Cousin Russ, at Family Tree Maker User, for all the great tips on adding the shaky leaves to our tree and to Randy Seaver, at Genea-Musings, for his great tips on searching a specific database for hints in your family tree.  We have a great genealogy community/family who is willing to share!

Before, I would go person by person adding hints and I felt like I was getting no where.  Using Randy and Russ' search techniques I have been able to go through all of my Pennsylvania Death Certificates and add them all to my database and currently I am working on the Social Security Death Index.

When I am extracting information from Ancestry.com to my database I like it all to be done in a uniform way.  To keep things easy I made a note in Evernote to use as a template.

Using the template saves time.  I copy and paste from Evernote and then copy and paste my data from Ancestry.com.  I use two monitors with Legacy Family Tree open on the left and Ancestry.com on the right.
