Best Practices  - 
 
I have had Evernote since it was born. I have a Clearly and an Evernote button in Chrome but I tended to right click and pick Clearly or clip to Evernote. I thought they were the same, just different methods.

At Denise's lecture I learned her Evernote worked differently and I liked hers better! Playing I realized that the Evernote button IS very different than using right click even though they are called the same. Clearly is different too.

Might be time to revisit some other things I've known about Evernote for so long!

United States Cemeteries  - 
 
Question. I have a map showing the location of all the cemeteries in the county kindly created for me by the Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources. That makes it a public document. Is there a way to put it on the page for Logan County Cemeteries? I have it as a .jpg and a .gif.

Here's the free-space page: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Whitney_Cemetery%2C_Campton_Hills%2C_Kane_County%2C_Illinois

As I mentioned in another post, I'm not sure if my table has all the correct columns.

I set up these two to start. I'm working on a spreadsheet I have for one but it is large and going slow. Please advise if they are set up correctly, properly linked, etc.  I don't plan to put a to do list on the pages. They are to done for the most part, just need to get the info up.

I should have been more general. I just meant if there was a city or township that the general public would look in for this cemetery, it might be a good idea to add an additional category.

I like the idea of having the GPS locators, too.

I have tons of questions. Maybe I am jumping the gun but I just looked at the cemetery started by Abby G so I assume everything is moving.

Do I need to be assigned space for individual cemeteries? Is there a suggested format? Will it recognize the names and suggest the links or do I need to search for each individual to link them? And, of course, how is that link made?

Oh no. How will I learn if I don't do it myself? But the copy an existing page is tempting. I'll try both and see what works best. Thanks.

I posted in the wrong place initially. I watched the YouTube videos, following along with my own program. I originally watched Dear Myrtle's Hangouts.  But since I don't use Evidentia every day I forget. I'm not sure what the solution is but possibly some sort of a cheat sheet (or if you prefer quick sheet) would be useful. For me - and perhaps not everyone - it would be handy if I could save it in Evernote.

Is there definition - like counties - of "southwest Ohio," etc.?

Maggie divided it into 8 sections. I've taken a map of Ohio and decided how I'm dividing it <g> and it makes almost all of my lines who passed through in southwest and one which moved about. The moved about is the problem. However, today I was thinking about pre 1820 census replacements.

For US cemeteries you can go to the link below, search ONLY by state, county and the feature cemetery and you can generate a list of cemeteries and locations in that county.

I think I have the Google Maps issue figured out. There are two kinds of GPS numbers, DEC and DMS. (I didn't look these up to see what they mean.) Google Maps apparently wants the DEC which looks like this:
 40.0703209 -89.2956482
rather than the DMS which looks like this:
 400413N 0891744W
I checked the link, went to the map, switched to Google Earth and then copied the link to the page. I thought that would be helpful for those who want to actually visit the cemetery.

Any integration you can do with Evernote is good. I use Evernote for everything and have since long before it became famous. If a program works in sync with it that's a plus to me. I didn't answer before because (blush) I have been using Evidentia too much lately (real life keeps getting in the way) and I had no specifics. When I used it to solve a sticky problem I cut and pasted the results into Evernote so I could have them with me in case I found myself in a place to check a fact - unexpected hour at the library, etc. Dropbox integration is also good - but it would be good to integrate with OneDrive, GoogleDrive, Copy, etc. Nothing wrong with OneNote but if you can only have one Evernote is the right one IMO. It is an interconnected world and redundancy is good.

I will see if I still have the notes in Evernote. I had a tag for entered and I tend to clean those out periodically because I have so many notes.

I used "inspect element" to look at a table in a wiki, trying to figure it out, and I saw html codes. Can we create tablets in html or is learning another language required?

Just in case it's useful to someone, here is a link to Wikipedia's Help page on Tables: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Table#Simple_straightforward_tables

I've done a little HTML and other programming, and the wiki markup was confusing to me at first, too! I guess it all just comes with practice. :-)

When I updated I could not find my old files. What am I looking for (file name) and where should I look (My Docs)? It may be on the old computer since I can't find it but I did Pat's hangout so I'd think it was on this one.

Ok, that's what I found and they were basically empty. I will see if I can locate something on the old computer. I won't be hysterical if I don't find them as I don't THINK there was much completed.

I'm getting lost. Is there a list of the various webinars and hangouts on Evidentia that one could follow in some some semblance of order? I THINK I am on followup hangout which seems to be in two parts and comes after talking with Ed. Then there is more. It's too good to miss but it is confusing.
