One of the biggest challenges faced by genealogists is organizing our research. Using organized files, documents, and source information can lead to more effective research, new successful finds, and a greater understanding of family history. In this one-day seminar, part of NEHGS’s Annual Meeting Weekend, NEHGS experts will offer strategies for organizing your research as you go, using technology to keep track of your genealogical information, gathering your research for publication, and preparing your family treasures for donation.
