    FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklists from Dear Myrtle!

    Lately, I’ve been receiving more inquiries than usual.  You know, “Do you have this?” and “What do you know about that?”  I think it’s probably because this is the time of year when people who’ve been busy all summer are settling down by a warm fire to spent their winter months digging up ancestors.  I know I get most of my work done when it’s too chilly outside for other endeavors.

    Unfortunately, because of my inability to come up with a system and stick with it for more than a couple of weeks, sometimes I do know I have what they’re looking for, but I’ll be darned if I can find it!  Any of my systems work just fine.  But I can’t seem to turn off “What if we . . .”   So I have copies on copies on copies, in books and in digital format, of all the research I’ve done for the past ten plus years.  It’s a lot of work, but worthless in it’s current condition.

    So a couple of weeks ago I determined, once again, to put a stop to that, and I’ve been working on updating my research logs and identifying the documents.  It’s a slow process, so I hope I don’t get bored with THAT and give up!

    Of course, after I’ve already begun, Dear Myrtle announces that it’s time to get organized!  I can only imagine what kind of awesome “What ifs!” she might have in store.  It’s entirely conceivable that I might just start all over — again.  🙂
