Research Notes – 2017-3-13

How do you organize your research notes, records and documents? Instead of constantly shuffling all that paper around, you might want to consider another option. At Saturday’s member meeting, Denise Olson will introduce us to Evernote, an online platform that simplifies research management. With Evernote it’s easy to capture, organize and retrieve online records at your favorite archive. Instead of spending your money on copy charges at a research library, use your phone to scan the records you find and send them to Evernote.

Stick around after the presentation. This month’s “short course” introduces Genealogy Gophers.

More than 40,000 digital genealogy books are now available online at no cost because of the efforts of organizations like Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg and Google Books. Genealogy Gophers is an impressive search engine to help you find and download books containing information about your ancestors.


The SAGS Support Library is growing! It’s where you’ll find back issues of the Ancient City Bulletin, speaker handouts and member guides. You’ll also find a growing Digital Library pointing you to useful genealogy guides and publications. Can you recommend a useful online publication? If so, leave us a note in the comments section at the bottom of the Library page.

The March issue of the Ancient City Bulletin is out. Download it now.


Findmypast is offering free access to their Irish collection from March 13th thru 16th.


At 8:00pm Thursday, March 16th, the Florida Genealogical Society will present a free webinar titled Find Your Family Stories in Free Online Newspapers presented by Annette B. Lyttle. You don’t have to be a member of FGS to participate in the live broadcast, but only members will have access to the handouts. If you want to attend the webinar you will need to register.
