My genealogy has taken a back burner for a couple of years. I belong to various online sources such as Ancestry, FMP, Wikitree. So I get messages from others using those resources.

Of course, I then come across a gmail, message etc that I've forgotten about after answering.

I did use a tagging system on my gmail for a while, can't remember why I abandoned it, perhaps some of the genealogy sites didn't let me fwd messages to my gmail account.

So how do people make sure they're keeping track of all the info that comes to various places online?

A very good question.

I can't. I save all the bookmarks but I have so many I can never check all of them on a regular basis.

I have many messages and emails about the lives of family members, and others who may be family members. Some of these contain a wealth of info that can't be found in records.
If you have an online tree. Upload them to that as 'stories'. I've done that many times.:)
At least they're stored in another place.:2fun:
