I’ve got not one but TWO new resources to help you use Evernote for genealogy. Evernote is a FREE note-taking service keeps all your digitized and online research discoveries at your fingertips. It is easy to learn, sync across all your devices, and did I mention it’s FREE?
I’m so excited about Evernote’s ability to organize my family history that I’ve published two new resources to help Genealogy Gems Premium members get the most out of it:
Genealogy Gems Premium Podcast Episode 114, just published this week, reviews what’s new in Evernote. Learn how to move items into Evernote from your mobile device. Get some great tips on optimizing photos for Evernote’s OCR capability (yes, that means you can keyword-search your PHOTOS!). Then we’ll tackle the eternal question: “How do I organize my genealogical paper?” Listeners have been asking for the secrets of my system, and all will be revealed in this episode including downloadable templates.
Using Evernote to Create a Research Plan is a new Premium video class. The key to a successful family history research plan is having a set process for gathering and analyzing data. With its ability to organize, sync and save information, Evernote is ideally suited to assist you in this endeavor. Premium members can watch this 30-minute class anytime: just sign in to the Genealogy Gems website and then click the link above.
If you’re not quite ready for this more advanced topic, try my other Premium videos on using Evernote: How the Genealogist Can Remember Everything with Evernote (for beginners) and How to Organize Your Research with Evernote (intermediate level).
