    This talk was fantastic! Fiona gave such practical advice, and I watched this right before my “Summer of Organizing”. Your timing couldn’t have been better. Thank you!

    Fabulous organising webinar! I am going to re-think my existing folders as I did start organising papers into folders but instead of 4 folders I expanded into great grandparent folders – which will be confusing for my children – so I will now revert to Fiona’s system. Thank you Fiona!!

    A first class presentation – easy to follow and it abounds with common sense techniques for filing our research. Well done!

    I organize alphabetically – surname, First name. I organize my pantry alphabetically as well. LOL

    This is a question regarding linking this organizing to using the Legacy software. Once the documents are sorted as per Fiona’s system, will Legacy be able to link the documents that are likely somewhat renamed to the families in the software that we have been using for some years.
