By now hopefully, you have lots of information. If you remember back in the beginning I suggested getting a lose leaf notebook and clear plastic sheets. It is now time to take all the information you have collected and not only put it into a genealogy program or into your family tree on Ancestry but organize it.
Like most of us, you have
more than one branch on your tree. You will want to keep the
information separate for the different lines. How you do this is up to
you. You can add a tab to the front page for each family name or you can
make a header page with the name. What ever makes it easiest for you to
find the information you want easily.
I print off a pedigree
charts with the names already on them from my genealogy program and they
become the front page of each section. I then place any documents or
pictures I have found that relate to the people on that pedigree
chart.in the pages behind them. Keeps it easy to find and neat. I also
never only have one copy of anything. Ever since our house fire, I
always make sure to have multiple copies stored in different places
including in a container under the bed which is what saved mine.
