  • Put a person’s papers from before they are married behind their parents’ family chart.
  • After a person is married, put their papers behind the family chart where they appear as the husband and wife.
  • Keep your pedigree charts in one folder and your To Do lists and Results Lists in another.
  • You then can put the Pedigree Chart and associated papers for each family in a folder in alphabetical order by name.
  • The more papers you get, the bigger the container you will need.

5. Store your papers in a safe place.
