Research Notes 2017-6-5

Last week we spent a day visiting Natchez and Vicksburg in Mississippi chasing ancestors and the history that surrounded them. Even though these ancestors and their descendants are now gone from this area, it’s still fascinating to get a look at the world they lived in. Unfortunately, we did not have time to do any serious research, I did get some suggestions for resources to look into. Thanks to Evernote I had access to my research notes and was able to provide details about the people and places I was researching and quickly add notes on the resources and tips I received.

The Natchez Trace

This is a short stretch of the Natchez Trace. The Trace is one of the first super highways in North America with a history dating back before the first Europeans came to this country. Indians used it to trade among the tribes. Later, American traders would float their goods down the rivers to New Orleans and after selling them, walk or ride back North on the Trace.


Evernote has an interesting article on using it to take notes at conferences. You can read it at the Evernote blog. Some of their tips are also quite useful when on a research trip too.


Did you know that Google Translate can translate entire websites, Word documents, PDF documents and more? An article at PC World demonstrates how easy it is to use. Here’s the link.
