Organizing Genealogy Research E-Book

Organizing Genealogy Research e-book Sassy Jane GenealogyI had a great time today presenting my session at the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego on managing your digital genealogy research environment effectively. Because it’s a fairly complex topic, the presentation has a lot of detail that can seem too dense just for a presentation. So I’ve put together an e-book, Sassy Jane’s Guide to Organizing Genealogy Research Using Archival Principles. It covers in detail the ideas we talked about today.

This Sassy Jane Guide helps you put your research records in order, using the same techniques as professional archivists who manage vast collections. No need for color codes, numbering systems, or other complicated schemes that take time away from what you really want to be doing, which is finding more ancestors. A retrieval system—a way of locating what you own on demand—is essential. Naming and organizing digital files for quick retrieval, file folder structure, and linking paper and digital records are all ways to find your documents when you need them.

    I really enjoyed your presentation and appreciate your sharing your professional expertise in helping us organize our genealogical research. I have also just ordered your material via PayPal and am anxiously awaiting it. I would also like a copy of the slides you used in the presentation.

    I’ve tried to use Ben Sayer’s method and find it to be rather cumberesome.
