October is #FamilyHistoryMonth
One quick and easy idea is to buy inexpensive, colored folders (these were 10 cents a piece during Back to School sales) and put the surnames you’re working on in different colored folders. We mainly use the large storage boxes for our family history, but for the individuals we’re actively researching and need handy, these folders are great!
Put paternal lines in the blue spectrum folders and maternal lines in the red (alas, no pink) spectrum.
Genealogy research isn’t so daunting when you can find what you’re looking for and pick up where you left off. Happy hunting!
