Organising Your Research

Taking the time to get well-organized will save you time later and it will help you research more efficiently. Most people pick up and put down their family history project as time allows, and the less time you have to spend hunting for something you know you wrote down somewhere, the easier the search will be.

There are a number of options for organising your research, such as:

> Physical Files: Folders, binders, display books, document wallets.

> Electronically: Saving electronic documents directly to your computer arranged in folders.

> Genealogy Software

> Family History Websites

There is no right way of organising your research; it just needs to work for you.  Most family historians use a combination of the above.
