April 2015 Webinar – Using Evernote as Your Primary Tool for Capturing Notes and Ideas


Have you heard about Evernote, but didn’t know how to use it for genealogy research? Join us on April 14, when Drew Smith reveals the secrets of this “virtual assistant” in his presentation Using Evernote as Your Primary Tool for Capturing Notes and Ideas.

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015, 8:00 pm Central

Description: Evernote is a free tool that runs on PCs, Macs, tables and smart phones and that can be used to capture, organize, preserver, and synchronize (across multiple devices) information of different formats and sizes, including ideas, notes (typed, handwritten, and audio), photos, online articles, web pages, and URLs. Learn how to set up an Evernote account; how to create and edit notes; how to tag notes so that they can be identified with particular surnames, locations, and document types, so that they can be easily found, later; how to get content into Evernote using e-mail; how to clip articles found online into Evernote; how to share Notebooks with others for research collaboration; and how to use Evernote to create research to-do lists.

Presenter: Drew Smith
