Excellent Reference work,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Organized Family Historian: How to File, Manage, and Protect Your Genealogical Research and Heirlooms (National Genealogical Society Guides) (Paperback)
If you have the 'privilege' of being the Family Historian, you probably already know that this assignment is one filled with papers, memorabilia, and a great variety of research projects. Organizing everything from relics to newspaper articles, to your own findings in the local (or distant!) town, village and city court houses and special places of records, is a daunting task.
This book helps prepare you for this assignment, and gives you many printed forms and spreadsheets you can print (from the enclosed CD) to organize these many tasks.
The book is easy to read, and reference. Specific steps are outlined clearly and concisely. The book opens the door to many other resources available, also.
Note: The 2004 version is the first edition, and has been exhausted from the book store's shelves. The cost of this book is steadily climbing. If a 2nd printing is not offered soon, the present supply of good used books will become even more precious!
