Thankfully, the tasks associated with selling our daughters house, packing and moving, are now over and done. This will leave me with things I want to do related to Genealogy.
In an idea from A PATIENT GENEALOGIST Devon Lee suggests using EVERNOTE to save your genealogy related emails. This struck me as a great, better than great idea. I have a lot of emails stuck in my inbox and did not know what to do with them.
I love Evernote, I use it only for Genealogy to write my thoughts as a research tool and also to store clickable links from web sites, posts from my blog and notes from Sacramental Records that I have found. I started with Evernote before I got my copy of MS Office 2010 and One Note is also an option but I am too lazy to move everything at this time. One Note also appears to be a good option for note keeping.
My favorite part is that is “portable” I can check facts and my note when I am not at home. So, with that lead up I will be copying and pasting emails this summer.
I want to go to HUNTINGDON COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, and BEDFORD COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY to search for my husbands ancestors of the Coleman and Saylor families. I need to get into the Courthouse records.
I also need to find more about a unknown Sperl person whose marriage record I found at the Archives.
Writing with regularity in my blog is now high on my agenda, since it was virtually neglected since the winter time. I have now set these goals in writing for the world to see and I suppose I will have to act upon them, it gives me a good push to get going.
