Using Evernote for Genealogy

You can remember everything in your genealogy research with Evernote, because it puts all your notes at your fingertips. In addition to superfast and easy note taking and retrieval, you’ll learn how to clip items from the Internet (rather than saving bulky web pages!), use OCR technology to search your digitized documents like newspaper articles, and tap into the best apps that help Evernote work even harder for you. Evernote harnesses the power of the Cloud to allow you to work across all your platforms (including your iPad and smart phone)  Best of all, it’s free!
