(Beginner-Experienced) You're faced with a pile of documents, a camera card full of unlabeled photos, and more than one flash drive full of microfilm pages. When it's hard to know where to start organizing, you need to start with a goal and focus on a plan to meet that goal. Whether you’re planning a self-published family history, a journal and scrapbook for family enjoyment, a reunion presentation, or journal publications of case studies, deciding on your goal will dictate your direction and strategic plan.
