Two facts that you will prove: Number 1. you will generate lots of paper and Number 2. relying on your memory just doesn't work. This book will teach you how to organize all your papers.

Genealogy can be an exciting hobby for you and your family, but as you progress through the various research stages, you will accumulate a lot of notes, precious documents, photographs, home movies and general family mementoes. You will also discover very quickly, that no matter how good your memory is, it is impossible to keep track of everything you do, every register you research and every precious document you save.

This book has been prepared to assist you in making the 'mountains of paper' more manageable. There are no hard and fast rules, telling you exactly how to go about doing this. What's important, is being able to find information quickly in the mountains of paper that you will create.

Whatever system you put in place must work for you. You may speak to others, and they will tell you about different ways they have achieved their organization. You will see similarities between different systems, but there are also differences. Choose what works best for you, and make changes when necessary, but most of all, be consistent in whatever method you choose.

Also included with this book are 19 charts (which fold-out to A4 size), and can be photocopied for your own use.
