4.  Put the papers about each family behind their family chart

    • 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. 



   • Store them in a safe place.
