Overview

It can take hours to research family history and it is easy to become inundated with stuff - paper records, recordings, photographs, notes, artifacts, and more information than one would imagine could ever exist. The usefulness of the collection is in the organization - using computers, archival boxes, files, and forms to help you put your hands on what you need when you need it. Also included, in this book, are instructions on the best ways to store and preserve one-of-a-kind family relics.

Bought this book hoping to find some information in my chaos of family history. Not only did I make sense of it all, thanks to some wonderful tips, but I was able to discard duplicates and triplicates of information "discovered" years apart. I had everything in such an order I was able to scan my documents and share it with my siblings. Now, I'm spending more time finding new information instead of duplicating information that I've lost or forgotten I ever found in the first place. For the beginner or highly piled family historian, this book is a must have!

Explanations and Examples of how to begin organizing your research for the beginner. Good for a refresher when papers have become out-of-bounds and out-of-hand.
