Just bought a new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone and it came with a 24 month Premium Evernote account. As I was about to move to Premium this was a nice surprise. Worth checking out if you are in the market for a new phone.

General Information  - 
 
I'm hosting a Hangout on Air about Using Evernote for Genealogy. It's at an Australian friendly time so the live presentation won't appeal to people in the US.

Here is the URL for those who may be interested in joining live https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c43mv00447jc3aq9qm6rcbcteug

The recording will be available on Youtube after the event

In this Hangout on Air GeniAus will give a short introduction to Evernote. I am hoping that some Evernote users (beginners most welcome) will join me to discuss the ways in which they use Evernote to support their genealogy habit.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jill Ball. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Thanks Jill and panel!  Been away 2 weeks for family reasons (history happening), but watched back part in Vic, part from a hotel in Canberra (until wifi died), and the rest tonight back in FNQ.  Great to hear all the different ways the panel members are using Evernote - I must try it out soon!

You are invited to tune in and meet Australian author, historian and genealogist Carol Baxter in our April 1 Hangout.

In this online interview Jill Ball will ask Carol about her work and publications and what she has planned for the Adelaide event.

Carol, also known as The History Detective, has been interested in genealogy since her teens and prior to becoming a full-time author and speaker was General Editor for the  Biographical Database of Australia.

Sorry I missed it, we had visitors. I'm tossing between Evernote and OneNote. I love the tabs in OneNote as a quick look see to what family I want to note on. Not that I've done much with either recently.
