EVERNOTE


EVERNOTE

I have been using this for a while now and I often wonder how I lived without it! Now my email inbox does not stay full, I simply email anything important to my Evernote account and delete the rest. Then I go to Evernote and find the notes and tag and move them to the correct notebook. It is soooo easy to find things that you put in Evernote by using tags and searching.


I use 7 notebooks to keep me organized. Everything goes into my inbox and from there I tag and move the notes to other notebooks. My other note books are To Do, Shannon Thomas Photography, Personal/Family, Cross Stitch, Reference and Share. The To Do notebook should be self explanatory. In this notebook I use the check boxes in my notes. I have a note for every month and I just add to it when things come up. The Shannon Thomas Photography is used for my photography business. I keep all emails and any other information in here until they are no longer needed and then they get moved to the Refrence notebook. The Personal/Family notebook holds medical info, household info, shopping lists, gift ideas, etc in there. Cross stitch is a big hobbie of mine so I had to have just one notebook for all my cross stitch stuff. There are free charts, thread lists, shopping lists, etc in there. You can put pdf files in Evernote also. The reference notebook holds everything else or the notes that are no longer needed in the other notebooks. The Share notebook holds any notes that I want to share with others on my Evernote page on the web. The best part is that you can use it on your desktop, on your phone, and on the web. You can get it from EVERYWHERE!!


Lots of people use Evernote and in many different ways for many different reasons. Here are two links that talk about how people use Evernote.




There is so much that you can do, you just have to give it a try!

If you already use or you give it a try let me know how it works for you!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…
