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.

Good article about figuring out what you want to use Evernote for before you get in to far.
 
Andre Bodnar from +artifaktCom has an article on how he wandered away from - and came back to Evernote.  I think many of the things he initially struggled with are common to new users.  One of his revelations was the power of tagging and better Notebook management.  It's worth a look.

Who's using saved searches? Next to tags, it's your new best friend!

Thanks for reminding me about saved searches in Shortcuts. I'd forgotten that one.

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

Just started evernotes für different reasons and am on the yearly payment.
My question is ..how do you use EVERNOTE with genealogy?
 
How neat. Two of my favorite things (Evernote & genealogy) combined. This looks like an interesting group. I have been using Evernote for my genealogy research. I like notebooks but I've also started using tags because I end up with too many notebooks. Look forward to learning more.

This isn't genea-specific, but if you're also your family's tech support system, Evernote can be a life-saver.

Mary Jane, it offers both and I recommend using both. I use albums (iPhoto), notebooks (Evernote) and folders (Finder) as broad categories and tags for any number of "detailed" keywords.

It takes more than a good password to protect your online accounts these days. Evernote's two-step login provides added security to your account.

Some ideas for how a society can use Evernote as a collaboration tool. With the latest Windows update, it looks like document reviews can now be added to the list.

thank you for your information on how you use Evernote in your Genealogy research. As I have tons of papers I hope Evernote will help me with this as well. I feel overwhelmed with paper documents, records stories etc. I want to scan everything and organize it. and I hope  it will help me organize my stuff.

I was using OneNote along with Evernote but today I imported all of my OneNote notes to Evernote and I am just going to use Evernote.  There is some cleaning up to do of the 175 notes I imported.  I've been trying to find ways to cut some monthly expenses and decided paying for Microsoft office is an expense I can get rid of.  If anyone needs help moving from OneNote to Evernote let me know.

Please consider signing this petition asking for early release of the 1921 census. This is not due until 2022, but if we can get 100,000 signatures the government will consider early release. The 1931 census results were destroyed in a fire and there was no census in 1941, so this is the last for a long time.

We would love to know how an Evernote-Genealogy would look like in a mindmap. Does anybody have a good example notebook to share a screenshot of? :)

A follow up to HOA I did earlier today since I don't make a great cameraman.
Today I did a Google+ hangout on air about Evernote for Genealogy.   Once I watched the video I saw that I was not a very good cameraman! Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have. How I use Evernot...
