Now that I have more time my plan is to get all my genealogy data, paper and pictures organized. This is definitely going to take more than one day but at least I can get started today. I found a file cabinet and some hanging files (will have to buy more though) and I have a plan in mind. It has taken me a long time to decide how to organize all this information. I had tried a binder system in the past but it wasn't working out very well for me so I have decided on a file system that hopefully will work out better. Here are some before pictures.
The one thing I learned first hand today is when you are doing research and you jot done a note make sure to put down all the information, don't assume that you will remember it when you come across it again. I am finding a lot of bits of papers with half written notes on them and I honestly have no clue what I was thinking when I wrote it. Lesson learned, and hopefully with my new system I can prevent this from happening in the future.
