If you manage more than one Google account, Kasey's method simplifies switching between the various accounts without having to log out of one Drive to get to another. A boon for those managing documents for various organisations and clubs.
This is one of my favorite Google tips and has made my life so much easier! A lot of Google users have more than one Google account, often a school account and a personal account. If you are like me, you have like fifteen accounts. Logging in and out can

This is perfect timing - I want to keep my genealogy life separate from my writing life!  This will be so helpful.  Thanks for posting, +Carmel Galvin

Why is there a Queensland Family History Society AND a Genealogical Society of Queensland? Family feud maybe? Any suggestions which one I should join?

Yes +Helen V. Smith is right and while I joined GSQ back in 1986 I don't recall if I ever knew the reason behind it. In those days societies commonly used genealogical rather than "family history" and I don't believe there was ever really the distinction between that +Pat Richley-Erickson mentions re these two societies. There was a similar fallout between Sunshine Coast FHS and either GSQ or QFHS and a parting of the ways. In practical terms I think they serve similar purposes in term of information availability and have both worked hard at indexing various records, many of which are now available through Ancestry or FMP.

Even though I joined GSQ (by chance as I saw their display at a historical event) it was largely because I lived on the Southside. However I also visited QFHS from time to time.

I have that option in many other programs in Windows but unfortunately not in Evernote.
