I can help you find your ancestors!
Introduction
I coach people on how to use their smartphones, their gadgets, and other nifty tech stuff to find their ancestors and how to get their research in shape!
  • Clients hire me and watch my videos to learn how to use technology to find their ancestors, to learn how to scale research brick walls, to learn how to use online resources effectively, and how to share what they find.

  • My specialties include getting the researcher past the idea of just using Ancestry.com for research (Use it? Yes. Is that all? No.); training on research methods, technology, online and offline organization; and training in one-on-one settings, group settings, workshops, presentations, online settings, and offline settings.
For free videos about genealogy & family history research, check out 4YourFamilyStory's YouTube Channel!

How To Make a Table in Evernote - Evernote Blog
Spreadsheets are great for things like financial planning, but using them for simple projects and tasks is like using a hammer to squash a fly: overkill. Tables in Evernote are great for this—and you can put them in a note or notebook alongside other project details.
