How to add the Genealogy Notebook to your Evernote

I've recently had some questions about how to join my Genealogy Evernote notebook so here are the steps.  If you have questions please let me know at or leave a comment. 1. Click this link and the box should open to join the notebook. ​ You will then find the note book in your Evernote program.  I use the Windows desktop version. To copy specific notes to your notebooks to use them : 1.  Locate the notebook and right click the note you want to save in your Evernote account. 2.  Click copy to notebook. 3.  In the next window that opens select the note book you want to copy to. {I copy to my inbox notebook and make whatever changes and rename the note then move it to the correct notebook.

Evernote -- Best Practices Notebook

To help keep data consistent in my Legacy database I created a notebook named Best Practices.  Evernote is always open on my computer so it is easy to open it up and find what I need and enter it consistently each time. For example : When adding a Find A Grave event to my Legacy database I open the Best Practices notebook and go to the Event -- Find A Grave note.  I copy the template and paste it into the event and fill in the information. There are notes for events, citations, and templates.  The copy and paste feature makes quick and easy to enter data consistently. How do you keep your information consistent??
