What I learned from the A to Z Challenge



  1. I should have planned my posts better.  When I first started I was doing great and then weekend happened!  Next time I will plan ahead and have posts done and scheduled to post.
  2. I really like blogging!  I looked forward to writing each post and sharing my Legacy database and Evernote.
  3. I really like the comments from my readers.  I tried very hard to make sure that I commented on those who left me comments.
  4. There are a lot of great bloggers out there!
  5. Even those who are non genealogy addicts still found my blog interesting!
  6. I like sharing Legacy tips and tricks and how I use it in my genealogy.
  7. Evernote is great at archiving posts with a little help from IFTTT.  
  8. My Legacy to do list and my sources need some cleaning up.
  9. I still don't have a great way to track my genealogy -- A research log would be great if I could decide on the best way to do it.
  10. I LOVE genealogy!
I hope everyone has enjoyed the A to Z challenge for April.  If there are still questions about anything that I posted please let me know and I will help you the best that I can!  Thank you to those that have stopped by and I hope to see you here again!

{Off to plan some future blog posts...planning ahead!}

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
