For those Evernote enthusiasts [Read: obsessed], I thought I'd round up some recent links to blog posts concerning Evernote for today's Gen-Tech Links blog post.
For those not in the know, Evernote is a popular note-taking app that can help you keep up with note-taking online or offline, and it will keep you organized like a file cabinet.
What makes it so very handy is that it's available on the web [providing cloud storage], for your desktop [or laptop], and for your mobile device [smartphone, tablet, etc.]. And it syncs your data for you.
In a courthouse looking up all those divorces your grandfather had [I know a little something about that.], and you find something fabulous [like a copy of his will that indirectly names his last mistress. True story.]? No problem. Make a note in Evernote. And/or snap a photo of the will & send it straight to your Evernote account with your smartphone.
And like magic *snaps fingers*, upon opening, it will sync to your web-based Evernote account, your desktop, and/or your tablet. In fact, wherever you have Evernote installed with the same account, it will sync your stuff.
So, over a glass of wine later you can read your grandfather's will over and over in private and with your sister and think about what a jerk your grandfather really, really was. [True. Did that.]
So no matter if you're chasing ancestors or living cousins, online or offline, you're sure to be organized with Evernote. And that's important for a researcher of jerks. Oops, I mean ancestors. ;)

And a couple of new videos on the recent Skitch upgrade:
That's right, folks. Not just easy annotations on the photos you take of old photos, letters, family heirlooms, documents, and such, BUT annotations on a map. [I think my heart started beating faster. Or maybe that's just lunch. *snort* ]
