Is your genealogy life spinning out of control? Is your “inner packrat” taking over your life or precious family history research or writing time? If so, trust me, you are not alone.
I’ve spent the past year sorting through personal papers, family photographs, books and other items that haven’t seen the light of day in over 10 years. When you work in a field that is all about preserving the past, the lines often blur between being a genealogist and becoming a packrat. If you feel this way, then the Genealogy Clutter Buster Mini-Boot Camp could be the boost you need to be a better organized and more effective researcher. I have partnered with Thomas MacEntee of HackGenealogy and will be sharing my experiences and some of my favorite organizational tips and resources.
Here is the official announcement from HackGenealogy:
