Spring Cleaning: Tiding Up Your Genealogy – The Recap

Spring Cleaning: Tiding Up Your Genealogy

This month we are sharing how we are spring cleaning our genealogy.

Have you made plans to get your desk tidied up or get those files in order?

What are you doing about all those photographs and other items still in boxes around your house?

So, what are y’all saying?

Denise Gould Hall from Michigan Family Trails wrote a great post “Digital Folder Organization and Naming Made Easy”.

The Archive Lady, Melissa Barker wrote “5 Genealogical Records You Should Never Throw Away” on Abundant Genealogy.

June Stearns Butka says:

My Spring cleaning was my #40Days40Reviews posts of how I review my tree, record, hints and photos. I usually do that during Lent.

If you are looking for a way to organize your computer and paper files, binders check out Mary Hill’s post “The Family Roots Organizer Color Coding System”.

Amberly Peterson Beck shared: Hmmm… I am definitely not great at this, but I have been trying to be better. 🙂

Thanks, everyone for your comments this month. We all benefit from learing how others are doing things!
