Keeping track of all of those to do's!

I recently found TaskClone through an article I read in Feedly. {I don't remember who wrote the blog post or even where it was.}  TaskClone will pull to do's in an Evernote note to a Task List note in Evernote.  You have to sign up for TaskClone and then connect your Evernote account.  The free version of TaskClone will only work with Evernote but with the paid versions you can connect with other to do apps.

In Evernote I have a notebook called To Do that I keep notes in that have reoccurring to dos and any genealogy notes that I am currently working on.  All of the notes in this notebook have a reminder set. {except for one because it is a transcription of an image in another note in this To Do notebook.}

 In the image above you can see my To Do notebook in my Inbox stack {left column}, the middle column shows the notes in the To Do notebook, the blue box in the middle column is showing where the reminders are, and in the third column on the right is the note.  The red box in…

The image below shows the list of sources for Myra Jane Kramer.  The ones highlighted in green are from the Cemeteries of Columbia County, Volume 2 book.  

This is the page where Myra Jane Kramer Hartman is listed.  It gives her name, her husbands name, her year of birth and her year of death.  The pages are arranged by cemetery so I know where she was buried as well.  The numbers by the names are the image numbers from my camera on the day we photographed this cemetery.




Do you "Google"?

You never know what you are going to find when "googleing" for something or someone.  

According to Urban Dictionary the definition of googleing is "the act of looking something up on an internet search engine to include any people or background search to find out anything significant not previously known."
A few days ago I was searching for some information on Peter C. Hunter who is my 4th great-grandfather on my mom's dad's side.  I found a few links from a Google search that looked promising; one being a link to a Google book.  The book was Commemorative biographical record of northeastern Pennsylvania : including the counties of Susquehanna, Wayne, Pike and Monroe, containing biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens, and many of the early settled families.  So far the research I have done has not shown any Siegfried's in any of those counties but I figured it was worth a look.

Cousin Bait

I have a tree on Ancestry, Wiki Tree, and My Heritage.  The Ancestry tree is my work in progress tree and the others are mainly there for others to find and connect with me.  Recently, I made a connection through Wiki Tree when another member wanted to merge one of my ancestors with hers as they represented the same person.  While looking at her tree I recognized a lot of names in her tree. We chatted through email and found out that we are researching the same area and that many of our ancestors are connected in one way or another.

Below is my profile page on Wiki Tree


It really pays off having your tree out there for "Cousin Bait!"
Who have you been lucky to connect with using cousin bait??
