Need to know where you stashed Great-grandpa's property deed-fast? Don't waste time wading through every paper in a folder bulging full of papers. Use these Genealogy File Folder Cover Sheet Templates to list out the contents of your genealogy files, and assign each item a document number.
Organize your genealogy website. The hardest thing initially is filing...since you won't know if something will be important later, you'll have to file, and file it so you can easily find it later. It's not possible to keep track of online genealogy: everyone needs a paper chart that indicates paths and places, and where you might possibly see a connection that you had not before.
