About this webinar

Years of research can generate many documents. To keep track of all your valuable information, a workable organization plan is a must. Can you find the documents you have? When you receive a new document, do you know exactly where you’re going to put it so that you will find it easily? The lecture will discuss organization methods for paper and digital files.

    Teresa Steinkamp McMillin spoke very well, calmly, dealing with many what ifs, alternatives and reminders using good., not too busy, slides.

    Great information! So good that Teresa gave ideas you could adapt to your own logic — it wasn’t a detailed one-method approach. I appreciated hearing the reasons for some of the organization decisions that I would have thought were unnecessary. She also had suggestions for how to handle situations like surname changes. Quite a valuable webinar!

    I’ve watched so many videos, webinars and books on this subject, but I’m still an organized mess. I loved Teresa’s “Create A Plan” and to not do any research until you have organized all your papers, etc. She did an excellent job of easily explaining all the steps to be taken with a document and how she keeps her Digital files. Teresa gave some really good tips/ideas on so many things (ex. an Education folder of the classes/webinars taken on genealogy).
