A Productive Week

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!
