Using Evernote for genealogy

Are you afraid to close your browser for fear of losing something important? Ever filed something away carefully on your computer in a folder never to see it again? Is your desktop a mass of random documents that you put there so you could find them again? Want a better way of handling the things you find?

Speaker Linda Yip uses a program so good that you’d think it was made for genealogy. She’ll talk about the do’s and don’ts of filing, and how Evernote has made her a better genealogist.

She has been doing genealogical research since the mid-1990s and recently went professional. An ex-Biglaw executive legal assistant who has seen and used every kind of filing system imaginable, Yip has developed techniques for using Evernote in genealogy that you might really enjoy.

Linda Yip is a writer, photographer and storyteller, as well as being a genealogist. She writes about her latest genealogical finds from tools to uncovered family stories on her blog Past-Presence.com. She’s an active member of the British Columbia and Saskatchewan genealogy societies, and is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Her passions are the history of the Chinese in Canada, Force 136, her growing collection of 30,000-plus images and keeping her finds organized! Most weekends, you’ll find her curled up on the couch with her laptop, either researching or writing about genealogy.
