Organize Your Genealogy!

Everyone should move once every 20 years!  We did just that.  Packing up my genealogy research, my ancestors’ photographs and all of the various family ephemera, I discovered I am NOT organized.  (What’s worse?  I thought I was.)

Genealogy notes tucked here and there.

Boxes of old family photographs still to be identified and scanned.

In the closet.  On the shelf. On my computer.

Obviously I needed help!

Raise your hand if you are like me.  (Please don’t let me be the only one!)

Judging by the number of Pinterest boards labeled some variation of  “Genealogy Organization”, I think many researchers do fall into this group.
