March monthly program presented by Cindy Patton.

As a genealogist who hasn’t felt overwhelmed with volumes of paper, a steady flood of daily emails, and projects that have been started but never finished? This presentation will tackle how to set up daily routines that ensure you make the most of your time; ways to set up filing systems that work across platforms both digital and conventional; and a step-by-step approach to GET ORGANIZED.  A “Tool Kit” of good ideas to take home is included.  Attendees are invited to bring a box or stack of papers for the “Hands On” exercise.
