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.”
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:
- Share genealogy research notes in notebooks (although with the free version of Evernote, others can’t modify the notes you share with them).
- Record audio files in notes (for example, maybe something Grandma just told you that you don’t want to forget).
