I have a horrible memory and an obsession with staying organized–Evernote helps with both. This session covers the basics to get you up and running with Evernote, but also includes features, tips, and use cases from which experienced Evernote users will benefit as well.
I am launching a new FREE email newsletter focusing on Hispanic genealogy, history, and traditions. Hispanic Heritage Happenings will go out twice a month, delivered to your email inbox on the 1st and the 15th. Each issue will include a compilation and summary of relevant blog posts, tutorials, tips, reviews, collections and records, publications, webinars, conferences, seminars, workshops, etc., that I have identified and personally selected for you.
I use Evernote to maintain a master Genealogy Index listing everyone I am researching for our family history. I also apply a Dollarhide-inspired coding system to each individual I am researching. Both tools help me make Evernote a powerful research aid in doing my family history research.
I have been using Evernote for 4-1/2 years, and using it to organize my genealogy research for a few years. With so much chatter lately among my fellow genealogists who have been discovering this valuable tool, I thought I’d start sharing my own fine-tuned system and tips.
I have been hooked on Evernote for several years now. It is by far the single most highly used app in my personal and professional information management system. I use it all day every day — on my Macs, my PC, my iPhone, and my iPad.
In this second post in my series on apps to manage my work and life, I take a step back to introduce Zotero, the main tool I use to archive and organize my professional and intellectual research.
