I have started working on Dear Myrtle's January Organizational Checklist:
Step 1. Create a LASITER surname notebook
Step 2. Put all direct line family group sheets in chronological order in a section labeled "Direct Line"
I have an FGS for my grandmother, Sue Lasiter; behind that I have one for her father, James Putman Lasiter, and behind that one for his father, James Franklin Lasiter.
Step 3. Put all collateral line family group sheets in chronological order in a section labeled "Collateral Lines." - These include the siblings of my grandmother, Sue Lasiter; the siblings of her father, James Putman Lasiter, and the siblings of his father, James Franklin Lasiter.
I have an FGS for my grandmother's sister, Barbara Lasiter, and one for her brother, James Putman Lasiter, Jr. I do not know of any siblings of either James Putman Lasiter Sr or his father, James Franklin Lasiter.
Step 4. Put research papers on any suspected ancestors and families in a section labeled "Research-Not Proven."
- I currently do not have any research to add to this section
Step 5. Place all important documents in page protectors
- I have not done this yet either because I need to purchase the oversized file tab dividers that can be seen behind the page protectors. Also, I do not have many documents to add to this binder as I have not done much research on this family.
I feel accomplished and ready to move on to next month's tasks.
Dear Myrtle also suggests we participate in Familysearch.org's indexing project.
