Binders are great to help gather everything and categorize it all, but then I also have my computer files which have become quite extensive. I've used a combination of several different methods in order to sort through my electronic files. I took the Genealogy Gems approach and have folders such as "Charts and Files", "History Topics", "Photos", "Research Trip Materials", "Societies", "Surnames Researching", and "Timelines". As I've progressed through my genealogy education and activities I've added some additional folders such as "Blog", "FindaGrave", "GoogleEarth" and "RAOGK". Those folders are more of a sideline from my actual research when I help others with their research or take pictures of additional headstones if I happen to visit a cemetery.
My folders look something like this:
-Charts and Files
-Billie and Margaret
-Myer and Antonia
-Edward and Shirley
-Research Trip Materials
-Michigan City IN
Another thing I'm working on is a bit on the creative side for my office. I decided to paint the doors to my closet with chalkboard paint and will be sketching my family tree on it. I'll post some pictures once it's done so you can see how it turns out.
Also, I'm thinking that I'm going to take a trip down to Cincinnati to go to the Underground Railroad Museum to visit the FamilySearch Center there. Perhaps with professional help I can break down some of those frustrating brick walls! I'm also going to make some personal requests on RAOGK to get help with the research for those out of state.
