Searching in Evernote Part 2

In the first Searching in Evernote post you learned about Evernote's search syntax.  Using the same methods as in the last post you can also search dates.  You can search for notes created or updated on a specific day, 30 days ago, this month, last year, etc.

The image below shows notes created last week using created:week-1



By using created:day or updated:day where day is replaced by any of the following day terms below will give you the notes you are looking for.

Day Term

Use with created:day or updated:day

30 days agoday-30

Last weekweek-1
This monthmonth
Last monthmonth-1

You can also search for notes by source by using the following:

Reminders are also searchable using the following:

All notes with a reminder in the next 7 daysremindertime:day+7

In the image below you can see all reminders that are due today.


I save searches that I use often in the shortcuts bar.

Saved searches for quick access.

No matter what you put into Evernote you should be able to find it using tags and Evernote's search Syntax.  Evernote is a powerful tool to help keep you organized and on top of things.

Do you use Evernote's powerful searching??

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.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

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
