I get a lot of information via email. I find it convenient to include the email message on the family card in the notes section, noting with an asterisk on the main card that there is source information in the notes. This is a little clumsy beause after you get a few longish emails, the notes get a bit cluttered. So far, though, I haven't run into any limit on how much I can stuff in there. I'm sure there is a limit, though.
My other choice would be to put the information in as a citation, but I suspect that there's even less space there--haven't actually tried this. Also, I get considerable information in hard copy letter format---which I can scan into word format and incorporate as above---but what I'd really like to be able to do is to handle these things like photographs---i.e., have afile sitting out there on my hard disk, and when I want a particular item call it up like you do photos. Anything like that in the works? Any suggestions about what works well for information storage/archival purposes and calling it up from Reunion?
