  1. In the year since I started doing genealogy, all kinds of stuff has come my way..even from my ex-husband! My current goal is just to get it all in one room. How do you eat an elephant? Yeah, me too.

  2. Thanks for the nods, Dr. Bill. I am still learning about how to deal with a family archive, and love to hear how others work with the situation. In the past few years I have added five more estates to the family mix. It's beginning to look like a full time job!

  3. I try to "semi-organize" the materials that I have. I could easily spend all of my time organizing (and never writing). So for me, it seems to work better if I have things organized enough so that I can find them- while at the same time just accepting that I could do it much better if I had more time.
