Several weeks ago I commented on the fact that I still hadn’t finished the filing and organising that I started back in March. There wasn’t a lot to do, but as most family historians will probably admit it is not the most exciting of tasks and I always seemed to find something else more important that needed doing.
With the profusion of Bank Holidays over here in England these last couple of weeks I have had a bit more free time and have made the effort to get it finished, albeit at the expense of any new research.
I am pleased to say that my filing folder is now empty. Hurrah!
Now I need to get out to an archive and take some more notes to fill it up again, but at the moment I am not sure when I will next get the opportunity. All the time the good weather continues I will try to make the most of it and spend my weekends walking and exploring the landscapes of my ancestors.
In the meantime I might start a review of my digital folders and make sure that they are still as they should be. I am sure they could probably benefit from some attention and it will be a lot easier to fit it in at odd moments of the day because I don’t necessarily have to be sitting at my desk.
