Q is for Questions

 {shhh....I'm a little behind but hopefully I can get caught up in the next few days.}

Today's A to Z Challenge is all about questions.  When you are researching where do you put your questions??  Do you take notes on paper, do put them in the research notes in your database, do you use Evernote, or something entirely different?

I'm an Evernote lover and I use it for all kinds of things {sometimes I still write notes on paper though.}  Event the handwritten notes make there was in to Evernote.

The image below is some notes I was taking while going through an obituary.  This note makes sense to me now but if I found it in a few weeks would it still make sense?  What about in a year or two?


I used the Cam Scanner App on my Android phone and I also have it for my ipad.  Cam Scanner has great editing tools to crop and tune the image.  It took about 2 minuets to snap my pic and make a quick note about the notes and questions that I had.  The note will sync with my Evernote account.  {it takes a little while to sync.}

The note shows up in my default notebook in Evernote {mine is called !INBOX}; then from there I can rename the note according to my naming convention, crop, and annotate on the image.  Next, I will drop it in the !TO DO notebook.  


My last step is adding a To Do to Legacy.  In the locality it says Evernote.


How do you keep track of your research questions??
