Technology Study Group – Evernote: A Genealogist’s Best Friend!
This technology program on Evernote is on October 13 at 7 pm on our Zoom channel!
It has been said about Evernote that “It may be the best application that you have never heard about.” That was probably in its earlier days, as I find most genealogists of today have heard of it; but don’t necessarily know how to use it. The presentation is designed to not only tell you what Evernote will do; but to show you how to do it. Cyndi Engles of Cyndi’s List has said “I truly believe Evernote was made for genealogical research. It is the online genealogist’s best friend.” While Evernote has many features and capabilities, this presentation will be focusing on the fundamental features that one would find most useful for genealogical research and other daily use.
Our speaker will be Del Ritchhart. Del began researching his family history in 1994. He served in leadership positions in several San Diego genealogy organizations; including President, Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego and Program Director, San Diego Genealogical Society. He was Chair of The Working Group for soliciting Sponsors, Exhibitors and Advertisers for the June 2019 International German Genealogy Partnership Conference held in Sacramento. He currently leads the German Study Group and instructor for the Larimer County Genealogical Society and is Secretary of the Longs Peak Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.
Del has given over 120 genealogy presentations to numerous groups in the Southern California and Northern Colorado areas in the past nine years. He published “Breathing Life Into My Family Ancestors” in late 2011 and published his second book “Ordinary People Who Accomplished the Extraordinary—Our Immigrant Ancestors and Their Descendants” in November 2019.
