Oh my goodness!! I have gotten to the point that I must organize my genealogical finds!! Sometimes I just feel too overwhelmed!! I really should have organized these items from the very beginning, but I did not.
I have hundreds and hundreds of death certificates, birth certificates, diaries, news articles, photos, grave burial records, headstones, military draft & registration records, last testaments & wills, including all the correspondence and other genealogical finds over the last ten years of research.
Now how do you get motivated to organize? I love finding items and blogging about them, however, it is very difficult to do so when you can't find the necessary documents or items that you want to share with those that might be interested.
I don't have a system, and I don't really know anyone else's system, so I figure the first thing I will do on my journey is to organize all the scans and documents, pictures, etc. that I have saved on my computer and my external hard drive. Making folders for each type of document and within each folder place the item in a separate folder by its surname.
If any of my fellow genealogists & family historians have a system...Please Please, let me know what your system is!!!
I will be back next week to let you know how my organizing is going!!!
