If you’re just starting out in genealogy, you might wonder what you need to do to stay organized. It’s hard to know how important being organized is until you’ve really experienced the joy (and frustrations) of genealogy research. It’s even hard to know what organized genealogy research looks like.
This guide outlines the components to a simple genealogy organizing system. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach that tells you what to do. I’m a big believer that everyone organizes differently, based on their own preferences and experiences. This guide gently steers you toward an organized genealogy life. I share what works for me, based on my years as a genealogist (and the mistakes I’ve made along the way) as well as my expertise as a Certified Professional Organizer.
If you’ve been doing genealogy awhile but don’t feel like your research is as organized as it might be, or if you feel overwhelmed at the idea of setting up a new organizing system, this guide can help you too.
The guide includes information to help you:
- decide between paper and electronic organizing systems
- keep a research log
- keep from getting distracted while you’re researching
- create good genealogy habits
Whether you’re a new genealogist looking to get organized right from the start or a more experienced genealogist looking to improve your organizing systems, this guide can help!
