Organizing your findings

My Personal Journal: January 5, 2001

Beginning a new year I decided I needed to get organized. I went out and bought a file folder caring case, file folders, ink for my printer and a few packs of white printing paper. This helped me because I am a visual learner and having the information I had collected in front of me helped with focusing and targeting the questions I wanted answered next.

I organized the information I had in family groups. I was researching both sides of my tree which became very confusing at times because a few surnames were the same on both sides but had different spelling variations and many given names were the same with first, second, and third generations being of Scottish descent.
