RT1786 - Managing Your Digital Research Environment

Session Description

Managing your digital research environment is essential. This session helps you: 1) Put your digital research records in order, using professional archival techniques, and 2) Organize your online life. A retrieval system—a way of locating what you own on demand—is vital. Information recall is quick and easy when using consistent data entry and file naming. Learn how to create a master genealogy filing system with just six main folders, and how to cite digital files. Avoid information overload and get organized online using specific Internet tools, and genealogy and productivity apps. Discover ways to protect your family history data using automated backups. Follow these guidelines and there’s no need for color codes, numbering systems, or other complicated schemes. Whether you’re new to genealogy or have thousands of records, using these methods to manage your digital research environment frees you to concentrate on the fun stuff: finding more ancestors.
