I began researching my family tree when printing everything was the norm, but it is time for me to review my files and purge the excess.
Today and for many days in the future I will be going through each of my genealogy files one at a time, assessing the information, digitizing, and hopefully throwing away a lot of paper. My digital files have so much room and don’t take up space in my house!
I have been wanting to attack this for what seems like forever and I finally have the time to focus on this part of my genealogy life.
I have decided the best approach is to start with the first file in my file cabinet and depending on the content I may only get through one a day. To keep me on task I plan to start a tracker in my genealogy journal. I love journaling!
The goal I am setting for myself is to work through a file a day or depending on my schedule a minimum of seven files a week. It will be interesting to track how long this project will take!
I am hoping this project will clear up a lot of space in my file cabinet but I may also make some new discoveries as I review the paper I have collected.
I am quite excited to get started and look forward to sharing my progress!
