Evernote for Genealogists quick reference guides 

Evernote is becoming more and more popular among genealogists and family historians as a way to not only track research, but to also organize and capture all those “extras” such as blog posts, website pages, articles and more. Now, Lisa Louise Cooke of Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems has produced Evernote for Genealogists Quick Reference Guides –  a series of quick reference guides covering all you need to know about Evernote and how it can help the search for your ancestors!

Why Evernote? Lisa Louise Cooke Explains Everything Evernote!

I discovered Evernote about three years ago, and while the product was geared more towards the general public as a “virtual assistant,” I knew it was a matter of time before researchers and especially genealogists hopped on the Evernote train.

In a nutshell, Evernote is a convenient on-line method to not only capture what’s important to you, but to have that data synched and available across numerous devices (desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.) and to be able to share the data with others.

If you’ve always wanted to know more about Evernote, Lisa has covered all the basics in convenient guide that you can order in a large laminated version or as a digital download as a PDF. The guides cover both Evernote for Windows and Evernote for Mac.
