Your Papers and Computer into Color Coded
You will need to bring your 4 generation pedigree chart, a family group
sheet for each of those families (16), and supplies from the shopping
list below. It may be less expensive to do a group purchase of the
items on the shopping list, if you want to do it with family or friends.
Reference = Genealogical Organizational Filing System by
Mary V. Hill.
1. File box (1) (temporarily, you can use a cardboard box whose sides
fit the hanging folders).
2. Colored hanging file folders (4 per color). Letter-size hanging
folders in blue, green, red, and yellow. They come with 1/3
and 1/5 cut slots, which has to do with the size of the plastic
tab. Choose the 1/5 cut which works best with this system.
Hanging file folders keep the manilla folders from slipping down
in the file box. You will need 4 of each color, minimum. Most
office supply companies sell the colored file folders in packs of
25. If the package comes with a 5th color, it will also be used.
3. Standard green file folders (25). Letter-size hanging file folders in
the generic standard green color, 1/5 cut.
4. Manilla folders (50). 1/3 cut tabs assorted, with reinforcement tops
to last through heavy use. Use 1/3 cut so that the labels will fit on
the folder. (1/5 cut will not give you the room to place the label on
it and write down the information.) Paying a little more for
reinforced tops will be well worth it because you won't have to
redo your work down the road a few years.
5. Pens. At least one ultra-fine point, felt tip or roller type, black
permanent ink pen. This must be permanent black ink for use with
both labels and charts.
6. Highlighters. Light blue, light green, yellow and pink (do not use red
because it is too dark.) These come in packs and our suggestion
also contain whatever the 5th color came with the hanging files,
which may be used in the color system. Colored pencils also
7. File labels (1 color assorted package). You will need labels in
blue, green, red, and yellow. They should be permanent
adhesive backed, or you may have to replace them over time.
The labels shoud be 1/3 cut to match the manilla folder cut.
Bring these materials with you: they will NOT be available at the class.
