101 Best Websites for Genealogy
Lisa discusses Evernote and how you can use it for your genealogy research. Evernote is a free website, a software application, and mobile app. You can use it on all platforms: PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows. It synchronizes your research notes via the Internet so that you always have the most current updates of your notes on all your computing devices.
Lisa recommends using notebooks sparingly, and focusing on tags. Here are some ideas for tags:
- Record types (census, birth, death, marriage, etc.)
- Locations (city, state, country)
- Surnames (Smith, Jones, etc.)
- Tasks (Analyze, Correspondence, Questions, etc)
