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 to learn a better way of handling the things you find? Linda uses a program so good you’d think it was made for genealogy. 

Linda has worked with every combination of paper and electronic file organization imaginable. What she’s learned is, there’s no wrong way to file and the best system is what works for you. She will introduce you to Linda’s Five Rules of Filing, how using Evernote made her a better genealogist and how you too can organize your genealogy using Evernote.
