Organizing Your Genealogical Research Project

Managing the genealogical research paper flow can be a challenge. Charts, clippings, certificates, correspondence, research notes, copies from microfilm, and other assorted papers accumulate at an amazing rate. Even if a lot of your information is stored on your computer, there are many items that only exist on paper. Scanning all these documents requires special equipment and takes time. In any case, you should always have a backup of your electronic archives.
