Save yourself future frustration and disappointment by putting a solid genealogy organizational plan in place for all the types of items that will be coming your way. I personally use the systems that I am sharing with you, and they have proven to be reliable and efficient. We will cover systems for 4 types of stuff:
1. Organizing All This Paper! The Physical Items Organization System
2. Organizing All That Genealogical Data! The Family Tree Data Organization System
3. Organizing All These Digital Files! The Digital Organization System
4. Organizing All that Web Information! The Online Notetaking System
