I have enjoyed reading how others use Evernote to help with their family history research.

For research projects though I use Evernote. In particular if there is a book, a manuscript, a database I want to look up and explore I add it to Evernote with the questions I want answered and tag it with the relevant surname and the repository plus to do.

I use this for interstate repositories too, for example the State Library of South Australia which I get to visit less than once a year. It is really useful to have collected in advance all the things I want to achieve there as I think of them.
Evernote is synchronised across my desktop computer, my iPad and my android phone. Thus I have my to do list with me all the time.
