Using Evernote for Genealogy @ WEBINAR | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

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 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 you’d think it was made for genealogy. She’ll talk about the dos and don’ts of filing, and how Evernote has made her a better genealogist. She has been doing genealogy since the mid-90s and recently went pro. An ex-BigLaw executive legal assistant who’s seen and used every kind of filing style imaginable, Linda has developed techniques for using Evernote in genealogy that you might really enjoy.

Speaker: Linda Yip is a writer, a photographer, and a storyteller, as well as being a genealogist. Linda writes about her latest genealogy finds from tools to uncovered family stories on her blog Past-Presence.com. She’s an active member of the BC and SK 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 30K+ 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.
