Genealogy research can be great fun. And very rewarding. But we all know it can also be frustrating at times. We hit brick walls and don’t know where to go next. We spend time researching something and then realize we’d already found that fact. We don’t record a fact and then can’t remember where we found it in first place. And we start to feel overwhelmed and can’t figure out what to work on next.
There’s no such thing as a silver bullet, but there is one thing that can alleviate most of those concerns. Organization. When your genealogy research is well organized, you know what you’ve researched. You can more easily identify clues within your research. You know where you found data. You can create a research plan. You can find what you need when you need it. And you feel much less overwhelmed.
I’m a certified professional organizer, the owner and founder of Peace of Mind Organizing® LLC. I help people get organized in their homes every day. I’m also a genealogy enthusiast and I’ve experienced all the frustrations I describe above. I know how great it feels to get the research organized.
I’d love to help you feel better organized when it comes to your family history research. In this blog, I share my insights, solutions and resources (and sometimes my excitement about my own discoveries). You can also purchase my Orderly Roots guides where I can get more in depth on topics.
