So I decided to go for a certification in Genealogical Studies from the the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. I have already completed the BU Genealogy course but wanted a more in depth study. I am hopeful that throughout the process of these classes, I will perfect my genealogical organizational system.
I have been researching my family tree for over 25 years and have accrued thousands of documents and files. I have spent so much time trying to figure out how to organize this mess over the years that I now have many, many organized piles, in many, many different organizational systems. I attend conferences and seminars and get great ideas there. I have a tendency to say “that’s great, I’ll do that,” and then it goes by the wayside with some information organized but the majority not. I have files and piles galore. I think it is time I commit and get organized. This blog will document my journey.
