Organize Your Paper Files

The following organizational system was originally set up by professional genealogists to keep track of hundreds of clients each day. It has been shared with university and college students to prepare them for their successful years in the future as genealogists. Now it is yours!

  • You can cross-reference each individual in your genealogy software program to their unique paper documents.
  • It provides quick access to compiled genealogies covering specific surnames,
  • It maintains paper documents and content tables to location-based files pertaining to a specific family.
