Do You Have Your Own Genealogy Research Toolbox?

Yesterday I listened to a really great webinar by one of my favorite speakers, Thomas MacEntee. His topic was "Building a Research Toolbox." This webinar will be available for free until April 18th and you can listen to it on your own time. One of the points that Mr. MacEntee makes is that we all have our favorites for our research, but we spend way too much time trying to locate them. We think we have a system of organization, but then our system fails us just when we need it most!

Mr. MacEntee goes on to talk about Contents and Containers and encourages us to pick our container first and then put the contents in. If all of this seems like mumbo jumbo to you, then go listen to the real deal! I will never be able to do this webinar justice!

Kudos to Legacy Family Tree for their great assortment of webinars. If you haven't attended one of their webinars, I would encourage you to do so! It's amazing what you will learn!
