Ways to Make Evernote Even Better for Genealogy
Posted by Diane

The free Evernote, which scores of genealogists have started using to organize their family history research and iron out their workflow, is usually described as an "online note-taking and web-clipping program you can access from any device."

That's true, but it's not the whole picture. In our Making Evernote Effortless webinar on March 20, Lisa Louise Cooke will describe some of the lesser-known ways you can up your Evernote efficiency.



In my quest to demonstrate there's a lot more to Evernote, I went looking for often-overlooked features a genealogist might find helpful. Here's just a handful:
  • Search attached documents with Evernote‚Äôs optical character recognition capability, which converts images of printed documents into searchable text.
  • Link notes to keep related information together.
  • Use apps that work with Evernote to: draw notes on photos (Skitch), connect your Evernote and Gmail accounts (Powerbot for Gmail), connect your Evernote and Feedly accounts (IFFFT), easily clip web pages on your iPhone or iPad (Everclip), start typing a note on your iPhone or iPad whenever the mood strikes and then send it to Evernote or another service (Drafts), and more. (I haven't tried all these apps, but I wanted to let you know they're out there.)
Lisa Louise Cooke is an expert on using Evernote for genealogy. In the Making Evernote Effortless Webinar, she'll share lesser-known Evernote tricks and her favorite work-with-Evernote apps for organizing her genealogy research and streamlining her workflow. You can learn more about the webinar and sign up here.
