I decided to clean up the stacks of paper I accumulated over the past few years. I did have a filing system in place but could not keep up with filing the paper. In other words, I had a mess on my hands.
In attending the National Genealogical Conference I often heard of Evernote but did not pay attention since I already had a great genealogy software program. I decided to look at Evernote but heard a lot of complaints from those who were using the software. These complaints included limiting the number of devices you can use with Evernote under the basic package. The basic package included two devices. Several die-hard users found this to limited & have since left Evernote and joined OneNote.
Next, I tried OneNote and was impressed with being able to use it with Microsoft Office. I use Windows 10 and found it integrated with Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. OneNote 2016 was part of the MS Office package. I was not limited to the number of devices. I set up OneNote on my desktop, laptop, and my iPhone. All three devices are sync to Onedrive. The space on Onedrive is more than I need since I am using Office365 I have one terabyte of storage space. I have put a lot of time into OneNote. To make a fair assessment I will try Evernote and let you what I think.
I have been using OneNote for several weeks and my stacks of paper were being digitized and organized. I will be posting more regarding this topic as it relates to genealogy.
