It’s hard to believe that it’s already spring break time. And with that said I have challenged myself to finally start some organizing. I bought a portable scanner a few years ago that I love. I have used it pretty consistently and have more than a few hundred documents, photos, and funeral programs that need to be named and organized on my laptop. I know this sounds really bad. But believe me, the reality of it is much worse. I know that if I write about it I will be more likely to hold myself accountable for getting this done.
Sometimes genealogy isn’t just about research. There are times when you have to make time to organize what you have already found. We are taking a trip to Dallas during spring break this weekend. My plan is to take my laptop with me on our trip to Dallas and work on naming the scans on the ride there and back. Now Dallas is a five-hour one-way trip, and I plan to use at least half of that time each way organizing my laptop files. Wish me luck!!!
