Genealogy Clutter

Journal by allycat

Does this sound like you?

Are you a victim of genealogy clutter? Don't know what to do with it all? Have you got family history software programs that you've yet to try?

Is your filing cabinet really just scraps of paper on the floor? Are you surrounded by piles and piles of papers, cds, dvds, locks of hair, certificates, medals, newspaper clippings, etc.etc.etc.

Embrace technology to enhance your ancestral journey. Be brave and put your tree online (remembering manners, quoting your sources, and respecting the privacy of the living). Check out:- Geni, GenesReunited, TribalPages, Rootsweb World Connect Project and GeneBase just to name a few.

Start thinking about using some software like PAF (Personal Ancestral File) - very easy and free to use - from FamilySearch Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - Mormon Database. And then there's Legacy Family Tree Legacy 7.4 standard edition for free.

Organise that clutter:-

Organisation for Genealogists

Everything.com Genealogy ... preserving heirlooms etc.

Organise that genealogical clutter

Genealogy on demand - organising genealogical paper files

Family Tree Magazine - cut computer clutter


Best wishes,

Allycat, I totally agree embracing technology will really enhance your ancestral journey. Putting your family tree online doesn't need to be difficult. It can even make things easier. For example, a genealogy software that I love using is http://www.onegreatfamily.com. They use an internet-based collective family tree style that is extremely effective. Also OneGreatFamily searches 24-hours a day for you, comparing every person youve added against everybody else in the tree to see if they are the same person. They even offer a 7-day free trial, so go check it out.
