The first week of the Do-Over has been productive. I've decided the basics for the new file. File naming, forms, storage and anything to do with basic research. Everything is neat and waiting for data. I have started renaming documents and photos already. I'm not really in a hurry as I can rename them as I work on the new file. My folder naming will remain the same system, as it has worked well for me in the past. I have used Folder Marker for a long time and colored my folders the same as I use in my RootsMagic to mark families. My files, documents and photos, are getting a new system. I didn't come up with it. Diane Ritchie showed her naming system in the Facebook group Genealogy Do-Over and I adopted it with minor changes. I'm happy with it.
I also watched Dear Myrtle's Beginning Genealogy Study Group.(YouTube link) I really enjoyed it. I will try to get to all of them. I had enjoyed Mondays With Myrt as well this week. You can see Mondays with Myrt on YouTube as well, or check the DearMyrtles's Genealogy Community on Google+. I don't really know how to link to that one.
I am feeling better but the Do-Over has me excited again about my research. I have needed that in a big way. I feel it has been a good start on week number one!
