Tame the Paper Tiger~Get Organized!

Being Genealogically organized instead of challenged will save you time.

You will need to organize :

  • Genealogical Society Newsletters
  • Correspondence
  • Computer Printouts from the Internet and Databases
  • Photocopies
  • Vital Records
  • Photographs
  • Books
  • Maps
  • Log Sheets
  • Web Sites
  • Catalogs
  • Ancestor Timelines
  • Workshop/Class information

Your Living Room Floor is NOT
large enough to be used as your storage area!
