Whether you’re just starting your family history, or you find yourself climbing through mountains of genealogy documents, it’s a great idea to create a system to organize your family history. Try some of the following ways:
“Mommy, where did you get that?”
Hmmm… where did I get that? Did it belong to my grandmother? Or was it my mother’s? Wait… if it was my mother’s, where did she get it? And how did I end up with it? With the everyday busy-ness of life, work, and family, I have found it increasingly difficult to remember my own name some days, much less where I got that antique candy dish.
