Genealogists will get tips on organizing research

By From page A4 | February 14, 2014

The Davis Genealogy Club invites the public to attend a free presentation on “Organizing Your Research” by returning speaker Marian Kile at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

All enthusiastic family history researchers face a daunting pile of research papers or confusing list of computer files at some point. Everyone has experienced the frustration of not being able to find an important document or photo of Greatgrandma when needed. Quickly finding needed items is hit or miss without a functioning system of organization.

Kile will demonstrate how to set up a simple system to file paper documents and store electronic images that allows for easy access. This presentation will include tips for the new genealogist as well as for someone who has been doing it for years. In addition, her methods can be applied to any type of material in need of organization, such as recipes or correspondence. Kile also reveals how to develop a tool kit for maintaining an organized system.

Regular club meetings take place on the third Tuesday of most months, and refreshments are served. New members are always welcome and volunteer opportunities abound.

The Davis Genealogy Club Library, within the Davis Senior Center, is open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays. A volunteer is available during these hours to help with questions.

For more about club programs or the library, call Lisa Henderson at 530-753-8943 or visit DavisGenealogy.org.
