I use Trello consistently now for planning out my Ancestral Storyboard. Each board contains Lists and Cards appropriate for the Ancestral line I am following with information, vital details, and images to help prompt my story creations. I use the storyboard to keep track of which ancestors I am writing about and planning to write stories about.
See below for an example of my Training Storyboard that features in each of these Video tips.
I hope you enjoy these tips and if you are a Trello fanatic like me, please comment with your own ideas for improving our use of Trello to plan our ancestral storyboards.

I use Evernote consistently to record the results of the research of my family history. Whenever I find a Birth, Baptism, Marriage, Death, or Burial record in my research, I copy the transcript and paste it into a Note about that Ancestor, inside a Notebook about that Family Group.
This process keeps all of my research results together in one place in the cloud for ease of access and sharing with others.
See below for an example of my Evernote Notebooks.
I hope you enjoy these tips and if you are an Evernote fanatic like me, please comment with your own ideas for improving our use of Evernote to organise your ancestral research records.
