Lately I’ve been seeing more and more chatter with people (meaning genealogists and family historians
) asking and talking about this
How many of you are using it?
What make’s it an important tool in your genealogy arsenal?
What tip would you give newbies just getting started?
And, how many of you would like to use it and are a bit intimidated about getting started?
If you fall into the latter category, Thomas MacEntee (High-Definition Genealogy) recently posted on Facebook a link to the Beginner’s Guide to Evernote and he has an article at Archives.com, Evernote: Your Virtual Genealogy Assistant. So, if you’ve been dilly-dallying about trying Evernote (cough – this author falls into that category), you may have run out of excuses ...
Are you just now jumping on the Evernote bandwagon?
Do you want to use it for your genealogical research?
