As I began the Do-Over, I determined that I would create new databases in two different programs. In each program, I began with myself and added my parents and grandparents. As I added them to the databases I entered the sources I had to prove the information.
As I scan images, I want to be able to store them in a way that they will be accessible to both software programs. After playing around with several ideas, my solution was to create a folder named "Genealogy Media" inside will be individual family folders. This will mean that I can scan to one place and access for both data bases.
I have established a workflow that I hope will halp me to work smarter not harder! As I begin to work on a family I will first gather any documents that I have and scan them into a media folder. As I enter facts for each individual they will be sourced and dosuments will be added to the record. The documents will then be filed in an appropriatly labeled file folder. After I have entered what I know I will begin also adding internet search results comptete with proper sources.
