I’m pretty much hooked to genealogy after my trip. After going to these research repositories and seeing how they organize their numerous amount of records, it has inspired me to organize my family documents  in a similar way. While digital is the most space efficient and I am using computer technology in my family tree a lot, I like hard copies and have a lot of documents from my family and my own research. I would use excel spreadsheet to make an index and spend a little money on some organizational stuff. I guess it would be a museum inventory, kind of exciting. As of now I have manilla folders with the surnames on it, but are getting stuffed, particularly my Freeman line.
