"Using Evernote & One Note for Genealogy” 1:30


Evernote and OneNote are great note taking applications that can be shared among computers, laptops, tablets and cell phones. Learn the  differences between the two and the many ways you can use these programs in your genealogy research including keeping track of possible relatives, figuring out complex logic and keeping location information.  
Our Speaker: Grace Wilfong
