Research Notes

3 Options for Organizing Your Genealogy with Shopping Lists


Ask anyone who has spent years researching their ancestors and they’ll tell you one of the best things you can do for yourself as a beginner is to start with a good organisational system for all the records you’re about to acquire.

It’s easy to get excited about the research and your finds and not take the time to file and organise your research properly. Trust me I know. I’m still digging out from not investing in a good system. So don’t end up like me, organising 15 years in. And yes, investing is the right word. You need to spend a little money to have the right tools available to you to file and organise your paper as you acquire them. If the supplies aren’t easily available to you, and you don’t have a  system in place you simply won’t do it.  You’ll have one of those I’ll get to it moments. Twenty years later, you’re drowning in an unorganised mess. Trust me, it happens in a blink of an eye.
