While staying home I have been trying to use my time wisely so I have decided to take a free online genealogy course called Researching Your Family Tree on Futurelearn.com (they have an array of free courses). The course is cool and it offers some really good information and research tips all for free.
I am also getting my genealogical documents more organized (paper and digital). I have started organizing a 2 inch three D ring binder for my maternal ancestors. Each ancestor will get an ancestor profile page with their general personal information on it, and a family group sheet, then I’ll add all the documents I have found for that ancestor in chronological order. Once I have one ancestor completed I will make a little video and take pictures to show you what I have.
